Nose, tongue, eye controlled mouse
A group of computer science students at Hansei University in Korea has developed a software program that lets people with disabilities control a computer mouse with nose, eye, and tongue movements. A web camera carefully tracks the movements of the nose or tongue and then eye blinks function as single or double mouse clicks. The most exciting aspect of this project is that any cheap web cam will work, so the expense is low and the university hopes to distribute the program for free in Korea.
This is similar to the nouse, nose-controlled mouse, with the added ability to track tongue movements for those with limited upper-facial mobility.
