Swifty is a speedy USB switch interface in an extremely compact design. Working with up to two wired switches, or three wirelessly through Beam™, this pint-sized powerhouse can output mouse clicks, joystick buttons or keyboard functions.
Swifty includes an integrated wireless receiver for communicating with Beam™. Users can connect their adaptive switches to Beam for wireless communications to Swifty, so they don't have to stay tethered to the computer. Beam also has an additional input for supporting up to three adaptive switches.
Beam allows a HeadMouse™ Extreme user to actuate the left, right and middle mouse buttons using adaptive switches without a direct connection to the HeadMouse. When used with a Swifty, Beam sends up to three button events that Swifty™ interprets as mouse buttons, joystick buttons or keyboard keys based on Swifty configuration.
Beam uses low power infrared light to communicate with the HeadMouse Extreme or Swifty much like a television remote control. A receiver is built-in to the HeadMouse Extreme and is located near one of the HeadMouse logos behind the small window. A receiver is also built into Swifty and is located under the window in the overlay.
