Busy behind the chair

After being too poorly to chew the back of the Poang chair, Atilla has gradually got back into the swing of chewing it again & is now spending quite some time working hard, moulding the chair to her specific requirements.  She is also back to using the HNS (Hand Navigation System) & pinches the pads of my fingers to let me know which direction she wants to go in & can still pack in a nasty nip if I do not obey.

Hailing a passing hand

An earlier post introduced the Hand Navigation System (HNS) that Atilla uses.  Over the weeks/months/years, she has honed it until it is now very effective & it is in use practically every day.

In this first video you will see Atilla hailing a passing hand.  Once in position she is able to navigate it to her destination which in this case was the back of the chair.  You will see that the hand can support more than one passenger but only one can navigate. 

This video shows how the HNS can move up, down, left, right…. particularly when Atilla is undecided where she wants to go….
