Control and computer input devices
for Early Learning and Special Needs

Our concept designs are based around the standard switch-input 9-pin 'D' connector, used for example by tash's multi-switches, and once popular for 'Atari' compatible joysticks.


Joypad

Our robust Joypad is designed for Early Learners and Special Needs, and also finds use wherever a friendly, robust controller is needed:
  • Well-spaced, 'feely' keys for small hands, wobbly fingers or gloves.
  • Bright attractive colours.
  • Robust design, 150 x 100 mm (6" x 4").
  • Handheld, tabletop or floor use.
  • Robust cabe visually associates user input to the display device.
  • No delicate parts exposed, no need for a special surface - even works on the carpet.

Small children can find mice, trackballs, keyboards and even gaming joypads too difficult to use. The Holdfast Joypad gets them interacting sooner, easing frustration and encouraging exploration.

The Joypad is also valuable in any situation where a simple, robust directional controller is needed.

For modern PCs you will need a suitable adapter or controller.

Please note that large quantities are not available. We have a small number of units that we can provide for demonstration and trial purposes.


JackBox

Connects up to five special input switches fitted with the tough old 1/4" (6.35mm) jack plugs, to any device which accepts Atari joystick input.

Now you can use your old switches with both your old and new equipment.
