MIT graduate develops hands-free tongue-controlled computer interface

By 7 News WHDH

People with spinal cord injuries are getting some high-tech help in the form of a Bluetooth mouthpiece developed by an MIT graduate that makes it easier for individuals with mobility issues to use computers. 

Speaking with 7NEWS, the team behind the technology said their goal is to give everyone equal access.  

“People with severe hand impairment are isolated in this world and it’s just not fair,” said Augmental Co-Founder Tomas Vega. “So, our interface seeks to help those people and enable them to access and to share with the world.” 

The mouthpiece allows users to use their tongue to scroll and click on items on desktop and mobile devices.
