Facial Gestures To Surf The Web

from the even-less-movement... dept

Worried about carpal tunnel? Maybe you should stop using your hands altogether when controlling your computer. A Canadian inventor has developed a system to control a mouse by where your nose is pointed, while letting you click with the blink of an eye (left eye, left click; right eye, right click). The idea, of course, behind this “nouse” system is to use it for people with disabilities. Of course, as someone points out in the article, the fact that using this could make you look quite silly may not go over particularly well. I also wonder how it deals with just regular blinking.
