The Stanford Archimedes Project researches and develops tools that improve accessibility to information technology. This article, printed in a journal of the Institution of Professional Engineers New Zealand, describes much of the project's current work. One of the breakthrough devices from Archimedes is the Total Access System (TAS), which provides "access to computers and other electronic devices via speech recognition, head and eye tracking, and other 'human-centred interfaces.'" The TAS stems from research conducted to help the disabled; however, the interface could benefit everyone and make the keyboard and mouse obsolete.
