On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on Dec 3, Intel revealed the Wheelie 7 kit, technology that allows motorised wheelchairs to be driven with facial expressions.

In collaboration with HOOBOX Robotics, Intel developed the Wheelie 7 kit, a product designed to ease the transportation of quadriplegics, those with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and senior citizens by allowing these individuals to control their motorised wheelchairs with nothing but facial expressions.
