Mike at Geek Republic pointed us to this nifty Kindle mod. He writes: “[Glenn] is an electrical engineer whose sister has cerebral palsy. He hacked together a Kindle with a toy eReader so that she can turn the pages and control the Kindle with ease.”

Glenn calls his creation the Frankenkindle.

    This is why I want to be a maker. Love this idea.

    If the palsy gets worse, you could switch to arcade machine parts.  

    They’re readily available, very easy to make with, and very easy to use.

    (Available from the same suppliers are the buttons they use on slot machines, which come in a bunch of different shapes and light up.  Very good for making control panels.)
