Nouse- alternative to mouse for the disabled


A Canadian researcher has developed a method for steering the cursor with the nose and eyelids. The research is striving to come up with a way to operate a mouse with just the tip of the nose and by blinking to enable users with limited hand use to operate a computer. Dmitry Gorodnichy of the National Research Council’s Institute of Information Technology is presenting his research at a public symposium in Ottawa on Thursday. Called the Nouse, Gorodnichy has showcased it with a couple of programs he’s developed called NousePaint and a game called BubbleFrenzy. Great technology to expand computer access to those who might otherwise not be able to use one.
