iPad/Tablets for Disabled with robotic X/y plotter Answered

HI all!

I develop tech stuff for people with very significant physical challenges.  The iPad has been a great boon to those disabled persons that can use their fingers/hand to access it.  But this leaves quite a few of the people I work with left out.

I wish to create a "plotter", similar to the old CAD/CAM plotters, with the movable X and Y coords that would be adjustable for iPad, and the Androids, Nooks, Kindle, etc.  It could be controlled, by the disabled user, by joystick.  When the destination is reached, they would press a joystick button and a 'pointer' (instead of an ink marker) would tap down on that spot. 

I realize that many of these tablets require a capacitive touch and I have found pointers/styli, that seem to get around this somehow, so it's the robotics portion that I don't have experience with.

Would anyone be available for contracting to do this?
