Tips and Tools for Working From Bed

I’ve nev­er encoun­tered this web site before, but it was linked from a blog car­ni­val, and the arti­cle is pret­ty good: Because Sit­ting up is for Suck­ers: 70+ Tools, Tips and Hacks to Work from Bed

I still miss my lap­top!

And I have a pret­ty nice set­up, but can’t help drool­ing at this: the Ergo­pod 500. I’m not about to look at the prices, though!

Have any of you vis­it­ed Reac­tive Col­ors yet, or tried out the soft­ware? It sounds very inter­est­ing. From Mind­Hacks:

Inno­v­a­tive autism com­mu­ni­ty soft­ware project Reac­tive Col­ors had its offi­cial launch the oth­er day, and is now sport­ing a new web­site and numer­ous ‘reac­tiv­i­ties’ to down­load and play online.

The project is designed to encour­age indi­vid­u­als with autis­tic spec­trum dif­fer­ences and learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties to use com­put­ers, through which they can devel­op mouse, key­board, pro­gram­ming and screen skills and delib­er­ate­ly empha­sise the char­ac­ter­is­tics of com­put­ing that are of poten­tial sig­nif­i­cance to peo­ple on the autism spec­trum.

The project is based on open-source prin­ci­ples and intend­ed to be more than just a free down­load. Inter­est­ed peo­ple are encour­aged to con­tribute their own pro­gram­ming skills to the project.

The input of peo­ple with autism and Asperg­er syn­drome is par­tic­u­lar­ly encour­aged, as they are like­ly to have the best insight into what sort of activ­i­ties will engage those on the autism spec­trum.
