Israel Innovation News is reporting a very simple but cool new technology for the disabled.
It enables them to "read, play games, search the web, and make calls without the need for touch."
Sesame Reader, from the Google App Store, "tracks your face and allows you to turn [eReader] pages with the movement of your head."
You can also dial a number or type of a keyboard by using movement of the head to control the cursor movement and by hovering over a button to "click it."
This helps people to function in a digital world, when otherwise they couldn't.
Hence, the name Sesame from Ali Baba's magic phrase "Open Sesame."
Now people can read, write, and interact with others online--even when they don't have use of their limbs because of neurological, muscular, and other structural defect, or if they simply want hands-free use.
Touchscreens, keyboards, and keypads are now accessible to anyone with the simple turn of the head--up, down, left, and right is all all it takes to navigate, touchless. ;-)
