Father adapts My Button E Mac for his son

Shared by Salomé Azevedo on 2014-11-27 12:25

About the solution

As part of his therapy, the child needed to use Big Mac Buttons, which consist of large buttons that record and play back certain words or phrases. The individual just has to push the button with a pre-recorded saying like: "Help me". However, these are very expensive.
The father's desire of expanding his child's button vocabulary triggered the adaptation of the button into a multi-word recorder by using inexpensive materials, having a production cost of about $8 for each button
