Thanks to Josh Smith’s ingenuity, there are additional options for access to touch screens, buttons and small target points for those with limited hand function. The mechanical engineer created the Sixth Digit Stylus out of necessity following a C 5 complete SCI sustained last August from a diving accident.
Josh reported he trialing a variety of styluses that did not work for him, he developed the Sixth Digit stylus/pointer. More than just a stylus for mobile devices, this stylus has a universal design flavor, allowing access to an iPad, standard keyboards, microwaves and more for individuals with poor hand/finger control. What a great device that is portable, wearable and very functional! Here’s more about his story and invention:
Currently a kick starter project, Josh shared inventory should be available in about 2 months. Check out more about the Sixth Digit Stylus on the Kick Starter website and help him fund his project .
Kudos to Josh Smith for his ingenuity!
