Enabled Controller Build

April 3, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Join the NYC chapter of Makers Making Change and help us build the Enabled Controller Mini to add to our DIY AT lending library. This device functions as a switch interface for use between access switches and a computer or mobile device. They allow a person with a motor disability to use a customized button that plugs into the device in order to interact with their computer. animation demonstrating a switch that cannot connect to a computer but needs an interface to connect.


All the needed components, 3D prints, and soldering equipment will be provided. If you are able to 3D print your own case that would be most helpful but not necessary. STL files are available here. You will need to bring a laptop with Arduino software already installed. If possible, additional installation of the MU code editor would be helpful. Both are free downloads.


We welcome both experienced-> novice makers, disability professionals, and family members. We will be soldering so please no young children!
