The Story behind World’s First Assistive Mouse for Disabilities

Recently, the world’s first assistive mouse for disabilities, Glassouse, launched a campaign on Indiegogo (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/glassouse-the-world-s-first-assistive-mouse/x/13484208). This device can help disabilities control smart phone, tablet, and laptop without using their hands. Although this smart device is made in China, the team leader is a Turkish. Why does a Turkish run a business in China? And why does he decide to do something for the disabilities?

Mehmet Nemo Turker is a Turkish and he showed a great interest in business when he was a child. In 2008, Nemo traveled in China and found that this continent is full of potential, especially in electronics. So he decided to quit his college in Turkey and joined a Chinese university in the next year. In only two years, he can fluently speak and write in mandarin, and his secret is to make Chinese friends and think like a Chinese. In 2012, Nemo started his first company, Ceba battery in Shenzhen. And this company is very successful. Nemo has a friend in Turkey, his name is Caner Cem Marti. In 2014, a tragedy happened to him during his vacation and his spine was seriously injured. Cane couldn’t move his arms nor his legs after the accident, and he has to stay in bed all day. Nemo wants to do something for his friend, to make him happy. And later he found that there are millions of people like his friends. He felt that the modern technology totally forgot this special group. So he invented Glassouse, an assistive mouse for his friends and millions of disabilities like Caner. Glassouse is welcomed in disabilities for its convenience and user friendly. To make more people pay attention to this special group, Nemo put Glassouse on indiegogo. This is a nonprofit event, all the money he collected from indiegogo will be donated to certified organizations to produce Glassouse.
