Controlling your PC with your nose, the nouse!

Dmitry Gorodnichy, an inventor from the Institute of Information Technology in Ottawa, has developed a computer navigation system that relies on the movements of a user's nose to direct a cursor, New Scientist reported on Wednesday.

For good measure, a simple blink of the right or left eye corresponds to the right or left click of a mouse button, the magazine said.

The inventor expects the nose-steered mouse, or "nouse," will make using a computer easier for people with disabilities or for video game enthusiasts who would like to slay bad guys with the bob of the head and blink of an eye.
