2014 HackShanghai: JOY Mouse

The idea of JOY Mouse is generated during Barcamp 2014 at NYU Shanghai. This project is initially designed for those that are disabled to use a regular mouse but still able to either move one finger or the arm to control a computer freely. During HackSH, China’s largest college hackathon, this project was further explored and the prototype was done within 24 hours. Also, the instruction video and a web page for the JOY Mouse were also done during that period. This project won the 2nd Best Hardware Hack in that hackathon.
