Swifty is Origin Instruments’ pocket friendly, USB switch interface. Its small size belies its full feature list and high performance. Swifty’s universal ability to work with practically any host computer, tablet, smartphone or Speech Generating Device (SGD) means you only need one switch interface for practically all your switch scanning requirements.

If your computer supports it, Swifty supports USB Remote Wakeup. Even if you’re not using Swifty for access you can use it to wakeup your computer.
