As of now, machines can only be controlled through hands or fingers. It is the human limitation that only other gadgets can fulfill. However, today, there might be another way of moving machines without the usage of limbs. How about a tongue?

Scientists recently created a device that can possibly let gadgets be controlled with the movement of your tongue. This device was mainly created in order for disabled persons to live a normal life, even without their hands nor fingers. Here’s how it works.

Dorothee Clasen, the one that created the tongue device called [In]Brace, was into her Master’s Thesis in Integrated Design when she created the tongue-controlling device.

[In]Brace allows humans to have interaction with a machine using their mouth, or specifically the muscles of their tongue. This device is run by three sensors. [In]Brace is made out of a custom molded retainer that fits on the roof of your mouth. Inside the retainer design, there is a small ball with an embedded magnet. It was positioned in the middle of wire tracks in order to easily move its direction from up and down.

To know how it works, just place the [In]Brace inside your mouth like a regular retainer. Hook the wireless controller of the device at the back of your ear. In this way, the device will be able to send signals to the device you’re about to use. The three sensors located in [in]brace will be the communication medium for the human tongue and the devices to connect.

Here’s how it works, based on a video:
