Computer Mouse Head Control
Posted by Martin in Windows, software 
Tags: computer mouse, headmouse 2, mouse, webcam, webcam mouse, Windows, windows software


HeadMouse 2 is a interesting software program for computer users who cannot or do not like to use their hands when controlling the computer mouse. The software is compatible with most Windows operating systems including Windows Vista or Windows XP. The only other requirement is a webcam with a minimum resolution of 640×480. The program will initiate a user face detection during first run to calibrate the webcam for best results.

I don't need a webcam to accomplish this. I can control the mouse perfectly well by pushing it with my nose. The tricky bit comes in trying to watch both monitors while doing so.

You should wear a beaked doctor's mask (a.k.a. plague mask)

I knew that medical bills were large, but that is excessive!
