“We are really excited about this,” says Director of Social Media Elizabeth Rissman. “We think combining the appeal of arcade games with the communicating power of orbiTouch will be a hit with the campers. Easter Seals’ Camp Challenge is a place where kids with disabilities can play outdoors in a stigma-free setting, and we hope the addition of an arcade cabinet will add to the fun.”
Arcade games like Pac-Man, Galaga, and Centipede got their start in the early 1980s, but orbiTouch has given this fun pastime a new twist by adding an orbiTouch Keyless Keyboard to the control panel so campers can play the child-friendly Bubble Blaster game, which teaches typing with orbiTouch.
OrbiTouch Keyless Keyboard is an ergonomic keyboard that requires no hand or wrist motion to operate. It helps those who experience limited mobility their hands, such as individuals with carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, autism, low vision or blindness, and an array of other physiological and cognitive challenges. For people who experience discomfort when using standard keyboards, the orbiTouch is a great alternative.
The OrbiTouch arcade game is the first of its kind, and will primarily be used during registration on the first day of camp. Camp sessions are one week long with starting dates on June 12, June 19, June 26, and July 3. For more information on Camp Challenge, please visit the Camp Challenge Official Website
