The FrankenKindle Project

http://breadboardconfessions.blogspo...type-demo.html

Quote:
The Frankenkindle is alive, and fully functional. The 5-way keypad (up, down, left, right and center) and 'Home' have all been implemented with a substitute keyboard. (Also,if you turn up your speakers you may hear Queen playing Bohemian Rhapsody in the background - don't say I never give you anything.)
Very cool project by an engineer for his sister, who has cerebral palsy.

Congrats on getting it up and running. I imagine your sister will enjoy having an ereader with controls that are easier for her to use.

I love it! I also love the fact that this man is using his powers for good.

My cousin is blind and I was so happy for her when Kindle finally became accessible.

That is awesome! When I was going for my seating evaluation last year the occupational therapist was curious about my Sony reader. She was saying that they couldn't figure out how make the Kindle switch activated. I'm glad someone finally fixed that problem.
