The Tongue Boy SP by Simmunity
Worlds first tongue controlled Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP console and Game Cube controller for quadriplegic youth and adults
Created by Simmunity for special people in school, residential and hospital settings
Available immediately through Simmunity Corp. direct for current NewAbilities TTK owners and through NewAbility Systems Inc. packaged with a TTK for those not yet equipped with a TTK transmitter.

The NewAbilities Systems TTK or Tongue Touch Wireless Keyboard Transmitter looks like an orthodontic retainer with nine membrane buttons

.

We add a new jack for the Tongue Boy SP TTK receiver input. We also add a second micro-controller computer chip inside the case to decode the TTK signals from the receiver and activate the Game Boy SP buttons.

The Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP operates normally with all Game Boy Advance compatible cartridges, though games which require multiple simultaneous button closures will require an assistant to help push extra buttons during play. Many games such as the popular PokeMon Pinball game and retro game collections with Ms. Pack Man, Battle Zone and Galazian are easily played on the Tongue Boy SP without assistance. The Tongue Boy SP can also control many Nintendo Game Cube Games by using the Game Boy SP as a controller with a special Game Boy to Game Cube link cable made by Nintendo.

Each Tongue Boy SP system is lovingly made by hand and when completed looks unmodified and has full battery life. The customization process takes several hours per unit to complete and test due to the sub-miniature size. Six months of hardware and software engineering were required to bring this product design to market.

Simmunity is also developing specialized games and augmented communications software for people with various physical and cognitive communications challenges. We are dedicated to the thousands of young people whose lives we can touch and make brighter with learning, communication and entertainment products. We endeavor to raise self esteem and independence through accomplishment.

Like geeks that never have conversations. Or foreplay practice!
