A new UI allows a user to navigate through it via use of their tongue. Developed for those with disabilities, the system leverages the strength and movement of the tongue to operate various activities. The Tongue Drive System was developed at Georgia Tech by a group of students. The device uses small embedded magnets and is said to be a better alternative to standard puff input methods.


Hmm, perhaps if this becomes popular, girls will be seeking out paraplegics for their...ehem...technical skills.
