Griffin MouthStick Stylus is a touchscreen stylus that is designed to be held and moved using one's mouth. It was created for the purpose of letting people who are disabled use touchscreens. The design of the stylus focuses especially on balance created through mouth movements, as well as reduced discomfort for the user.
The stylus is made from "a food-grade stainless steel mouthpiece, BPA- and latex-free silicone rubber mouthpiece sleeves, a conductive silicone rubber tip, and an adjustable aluminum gooseneck shaft," explains Springwise. The idea of allowing those with disabilities use technology with ease is not often taken into consideration. My hope for this device is for it to set an example and inspire others to create gadgets that addresses this market.
