Ablenet Acquires Madentec

Ablenet, having acquired Tash April 2008 and SoftTouch in January 2009 Ablenet has now accquired the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell the entire line of Madentec products.   (Madentec retains the brand and will provide engineering support.)

Madentec (some of us old timers will remember this) once upon a time took over making the Discover line of products from Don Johnston (and in a move that happened to hit a student of mine pretty hard at the time dropped the Discover Ke:nx product and did not offer Morse Code on newer products, but that is a story for another time).

Madentec is best known for its head tracking device the Tracker Pro (people usually say, "Is that the one with the dot?"  Yes, it is.  Meaning the user wears a reflective dot for the camera to follow, often times the dot is worn on the center of the forehead.)  Other products include a head worn cheek switch (the IntelliWisp), a switch interface (the Intelliswitch), the Discover line of products (the Discover Pro and the Discover Envoy) and some other computer access hardware and software.
