    Sesame gives users with disabilities greater smartphone access

    There are many people with disabilities in the world who, for one reason or another, are unable to use smartphones. Seeing this problem, a group of enthusiasts decided to create a system that allows you to use most of the functions of gadgets without having tactile interaction in order to enable those with disabilities to have access to greater independence, privacy, and connectivity. The project, named Sesame, was introduced on the website Indiegogo and and is aiming to crowd-fund a total of $ 30,000. You can find and support their campaign here. Sesame is designed to be run on the Nexus 5 where a set of specific applications will replace the touch input on the voice and gestures. As in the fairy tale about Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, access to the “treasure” is granted by the phrase “Open Sesame”. This command will launch the application at which point further smartphone access will be carried out by voice commands and motion gestures.
