WiFi plug allows you to turn electrical devices on and off via an iOS, Android or PC/Mac web-based interface. Switch access is possible for all, but I was especially pleased with the PC/Mac access.
You can use TAB and ENTER to step through your options, and hover over the power button to use one-switch to turn a device on/off to your heart's content. Devices like fans, lights, bubble-tubes, food-mixers, heaters, basic radios and so on are all possible to control in this way, and they work instantly. Great as a cause and effect device. Great for basic environmental control. If Apple address the short-comings in switch access on iOS devices, maybe iOS cause and effect quality switch access will be possible one day too.
Each device costs around £40, although they're running a special offer with three for £100 at the minute. I really like the ability to batch multiple devices and be able to switch them all on/off on the press of a single switch. Entire sensory room effects / night-club effects on the press of a switch. Could be very impressive.
Of great interest to accessibility hardware hackers, is the site http://www.wifiplug.co.uk/api.html for which (once you purchase a device) you can request access to the Software Development Kit and API code to download and fashion into something perhaps far more accessible. The company are currently working on voice control too which would be very nice.
