You've heard of a mouse but how about a nouse?

* You've heard of a mouse but how about a nouse? A Canadian researcher has developed a system that allows computer users to control their PC with their nose and eyes. The nouse uses a webcam and tracking software to map the end of your nose and work out which part of the screen it's pointed at.

The cursor is moved to that position. The software also determines whether your left or right eye is blinking, and this can be used to mimic a left or right mouse click. http:synapse.nt.iit.ntc.canouse
