'The Tecla Shield DOS™ is a wireless device that lets you control smartphones and tablets using your external switches or the driving controls of your powered wheelchair.'
Komodo Openlab Co-Founder and Technical Lead, Jorge Silva approached me to assist in the design of the new enclosure for the Tecla Shield. Having already previously worked with George Brown College, he was looking to develop the concept further into something with more commercial appeal and some functional improvements, all in a low-cost niche device that would ship only 1000 units annually.
