Control A Wheelchair With Your Nose

A group of researchers over in Israel have come up with a rather interesting “sniff controller”, which, as its name implies, allows the user to control devices (such as a wheelchair) via their nose. While it’s still a long way off from mind control, it’s still very useful, as some folks might not always be able to use their arms. The downside is that this system might take a little bit of getting used to, though the basic functions of it are pretty simple, such as sniffing out twice to move a wheelchair backwards, and two sniffs in to move it forward.
