Researchers unveiled a strange device that resembles a rubber shield at the CES technology conference in Las Vegas, allowing you to control devices with just the movement of your tongue. The MouthPad was first revealed last year, but was shown at CES this week.
The device can be synced via Bluetooth to a range of devices, including computers and smartphones. Once the device is connected, you can then control it with your tongue.
The MouthPad sends commands via Bluetooth to the connected device, translating them into cursor movements and clicks.
“We are not only reinventing the computer mouse, but we are reshaping the human experience,” said the company that founded the project, Augmental.
While the MouthPad was originally designed for people with quadriplegia and limited hand control, Augmental says its range extends beyond these conditions.
“The goal is to expand the MouthPad so that it can be used by as many people as possible, allowing people to carry out everyday tasks hands-free and enjoy digital control with greater ease and independence,” she added.
