Smartstones and PathPoint unveiled their collaboration Tuesday, April 26, 2016, when Smartstones introduced a major breakthrough in the world of assistive communication technology.

Smartstones founded a technology titled :prose that has allowed nonverbal users the ability to “swipe to speak” on an iPhone or iPad, “tap to speak” with the Apple Watch and “gesture to speak” with their patent-pending Touch device.

In collaboration with this technology, Smartstones has joined forces with PathPoint, a nonprofit organization that strives to empower individuals with developmental, psychiatric and physical disabilities in five counties throughout California.

Using :prose’s breakthrough “think to speak” technology, PathPoint participants with severe developmental disabilities have been able to use brainwave commands to communicate while connected to the Emotive EEG headset.

PathPoint Vice President Seth Miller said, “seeing the expression on our participants face when she was able to say a word for the first time just by thinking was a moment I will never forget.”
