Meet mouthpad^, a mouthpiece with trackpad that fully controls devices using tongue

By Matthew Burgos

A mouthpiece that can control electronic devices using Bluetooth may have sounded like a dream, but for MIT Media Lab spinoff Augmental, it is a reality. The innovative hardware startup has developed and launched MouthPad^, a wearable mouth device that enables users to fully reign over their gadgets by sweeping their tongue across the installed trackpad chip. Tongue presses for left clicks, sip gestures for right clicks, and wearable technology for a fun invention. Augmental considers MouthPad^ as the ‘11th finger.’
