Use your head to control your computer mouse!
Designed for the disabled and the Lazy.

The problem:
Case 1: It's easy to use mouse for normal people, but it may be hard or even impossile for the disabled ones, especially the one loseing both hands.
Case 2: Some boys/girls just wanna let their hands free(maybe eating, writing or doing something else and have no hands to control mouse), they can use the Head Mouse

The solution:
Head Mouse is just like a earphone, it can be put on one ear and control the mouse. High accuracy gyroscope is inside, it will sense head motion and convert to mouse movement. Muscle activation sensor (EMG sensor) will get the mouth muscle signal, it will convert to mouse click. Bluetooth will help transfer all the informations.

So, move your head, mouse pointer will move; grit your mouth, will finish single/double click.

I just saw that you had the same idea I had - but some time earlier! Though I don't know what's the status of your project. Are you still working on it? Meanwhile I did a first prototype and will update my project soon.

Wow, that's cool! I already finished the prototype of this headmouse, and I am working on another project "the touchmouse", which combined the advantage of  touchpad gestures and the high accuracy of normal laser mouse,and the mouse is only 70x30x10 size. we are trying to make it into a product.

Wow, that's great! Would be nice to be notified when your headmouse or touchmouse is ready to be bought (or kickstarted or similar...).

I am thinking to provide a easy and cheap DIY version of this kind of headset - lets see how it develops in the next weeks and months...

I will support your DIY, and I will tell you about my experiences on the HeadMouse Project. I posted the DIY process onto the DFROBOT website: You can take is as a reference 

For the project of "All Touch Mouse", we will launch the crowd founding on KS of IDDG, I will let you know then :)
