The Sesame is a touch-free smartphone that is designed specifically for people who have limited or no use of their hands. This ingenious device uses head-tracking software to bring smartphone functionality to people who would otherwise be unable to enjoy the benefits of a smartphone.

The Sesame phone is essentially a Google Nexus 5 with modified software. It comes loaded with voice and gesture recognition technology, and is designed to be easy to use even for children.

Users can switch it on by simply uttering the words 'Open Sesame'. The phone then begins tracking head movements which control an on-screen cursor which can be used to navigate the phone.

The phone is well suited for people with a wide range of conditions including multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.
