Jim's Really Cool Computer

Here is the specs on my current computer setup.

I'm a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the neck down. I access the computer by using a pneumatic (air) switch to sip and puff morse codes. It is connected to the computer using the Adap2U Keyboard Emulator System. This allows me to enter keyboard commands, move the mouse and click the mouse buttons completely hands-free.

This custom built computer (minus the adaptive keyboard/mouse) is from Puget Custom Computers. This is my 3rd computer built by PCC. I highly recommend them!
