The netClé Project

netClé (pronounced net-clay) is a unique customizable device that makes computers and laptops more user-friendly for people with mobility limitations, allowing them to stay connected and maintain their independence. Since early 2019 with funds from the federal government, the Tetra Society has been developing netClé with the goal of being able to offer an affordable finished product on our TetraGear site by mid-2022.

What is netClé?

netClé consists of a small hub and a variety of connectable sensors, switches, and input devices that allow users to navigate a cursor with touch or movement from a single digit, limb – or even their head! At the heart of the netClé hub is a hardware-printed circuit board attached to a micro-controller that supports multiple input devices. netClé’s innovative software configurability allows for total customization of each input device to the user’s unique needs, abilities and purposes.

netClé features include:

  • An evolving variety of peripherals (input devices) including joysticks, touch sensors, switches and even a gyro!
  • USB connection for easy operation of a mouse and on-screen keyboard.
  • Bluetooth compatibility allowing for the potential to control devices such as smartphones and tablets.
  • Switch outputs for appliances and other electronics.
  • Sound and light indicators for persons with vision or hearing impairment.

The customizable nature of netClé makes it suitable for individuals with diverse needs, abilities and purposes; ultimately providing users with increased independence and freedom of activity.
