GlassOuse uses head movement and bite force to track the mouse

GlassOuse is reminiscent of a bulkier Google Glass with an odd blue mouthpiece hanging from the side. This device allows people who can’t use their hands for the keyboard or the mouse control computers only with head movements.

The mouthpiece is fitted with an antibacterial tip. It can be bit with teeth or lips, serving as a mouse buttons for clicks. Nine axial sensors detect even the smallest movements. When the user is looking straight at the screen, the cursor remains at the center and any slight movement moves it. With calibration, the devices should allow smooth operation with minute head movements.
