EyeTwig uses facial recognition for mouse input

iTracker released for Mac

EyeTwig has released a beta version of its first program for Mac, iTracker. The program enables users to move the mouse cursor with head gestures, essentially rendering the mouse unnecessary. Facial recognition technology tracks the movement of the user's face through the iSight camera built into most Macs. The program translates facial movement into cursor movements, allowing users to control the the cursor by looking where they want it to go. To click using iTracker, users hold their head in one place.

The program incorporates a sensitivity control designed to prevent unintentional movements from affecting the cursor movements. Users can select a global shortcut key for instant tracking activation and deactivation.

iTracker beta is immediately available for free download, while the final version carries a price of $30.
