The 'Kinesic Mouse' is a clever new device that allows users to control a computer with head rotations and facial expressions. For individuals who do not have the use of their hands, controlling a computer can be nearly impossible. The Kineic Mouse makes it easier for people with disabilities to use computers on their own.

The device is designed to make it easy for anyone to control a PC simply by moving their head or changing their facial expression. The Kinesic Mouse operates through the use of a 3D webcam, which can detect facial movements. These movements correspond to specific tasks such as scrolling, selecting an item or opening a new program. The high-tech mouse is capable of understanding over 50 different hands-free signals.

The simplicity of the Kinesic Mouse makes it ideal for individuals who suffer from Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s, Muscular Dystrophy or any other condition that affects the function of a person's hands.
