This New Headset Replaces Your Computer Mouse With Head Tilts And Biting
Technology is constantly changing and innovating, but the way we control computers has been pretty standard for a while now. A mouse, track pad, touchscreen and even wireless controllers, we have lots of ways to manipulate the data we see before us on a screen…but what is something that all of those controls have in common? Hands.
Well a new startup GlassOuse (Glasses + Mouse) [awful name, I know] has set out to change that. Focusing on helping the populations that are unable to use a traditional mouse, GlassOuse has created a completely new (and affordable) way for users to control their computers.
Worn on the head like a pair of glasses, the device works through head tilting for movement and biting for selection/clicking. The bite plate is also incredibly durable, waterproof and has three levels of click pressure for different type of clicking. Such as, on a normal mouse, left, right and holding down. Able to connect wirelessly to Windows, Mac, and Android devices, GlassOuse hopes to be a viable mouse alternative for people lacking hands/arms or the ability to use them.
Creator Mehmet Turker started developing the device just last year. He now has functioning GlassOuse’s and has launched a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo to get his project going. He plans to manufacture them this June, and deliver them by August. You can check out the GlassOuse campaign here!
