Toy Controllers bring a whole new dimension to playing with switch adapted toys. With a SimplyWorks Send, you can use a normal, wired switch remotely to control a toy on the other side of the room, when it is connected to a SimplyWorks Control. These control boxes offer different modes: a normal single press; or you can latch them on, so the activity will continue after the switch is released, until it is pressed again; or you can set them for a specific time period.
Our brand new Participation Box lets you control an electrical appliance by switch. Simply plug your appliance (radio, hairdryer, milkshake blender etc) into the box, plug in a switch and off you go! The SimplyWorks Energise lets you control two applicances, by up to six different switches (even a combination of wired and wireless switches), so the opportunities for collaboration and turn taking are limited only by your imagination.
Also new is our Toy Control Box – such a brilliant way to let a child choose which toys they would like to play with. You can plug up to four different switch adapted toys into the box, and through an on-screen computer interface, the child chooses which one they would like to activate. It’s accessible by touch screen, scanning, eye gaze or any other method, so a truly empowering play option. Great for keeping attention for longer, teaching cause and effect, teaching scanning – and just plain fun.
Imagine the possibilities!
- A transmitter which is used to send the switch press,
- A compatible receiver that is connected to the device,
- A suitably adapted device (see our range of toys and other equipment).
