Making Faces to Control Electronics

majingfaceThe Japanese inventor of the “Mimi Switch” or “Ear Switch”, invented that the facial expressions such as blinking of eyes, making a sound like a clock by one’s tongue, can control electronic devices such as an iPod.
We can make faces to change music on our iPod, with help from the headphone-like device containing tiny optical sensors that pick up subtle muscles movements in the ear canal, and translates the readings to electronic signals that play, stop or skip the music.
The device can be used as a hands-free remote control for any electronic appliances in the near future, he said. It could also provide help for the elderly and people with disabilities.
Now he is seeking business partners to convert his invention into a commercial product.
