Smyle Mouse Version 1.2 improves lives by delivering hands-free, touch-free and voice-free computer control via facial gestures. Underlying gestures can also be used for hands-free control in Augmented / Virtual / Mixed Reality applications.

Perceptive Devices, which provides award winning technology in the field of Human Computer Interaction, today announced the latest release of its gesture control software, the Smyle Mouse.

“I lost the use of my arms about two years ago so whenever I used the computer I needed assistance. So I only spent about 30 minutes a day on my laptop. Now after Smyle Mouse, I use my laptop over nine hours a day without assistance,” said Jeff from USA.

“We believe that our hands-free gesture control technology can not only help millions of people around the world who have difficulties using their hands or arms, but will also be very useful for variety of enterprise as well as gaming applications, especially in the fields of Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality,” said Uday Parshionikar, founder of Perceptive Devices.

Smyle Mouse allows users to achieve mouse control in a completely hands-free, touch-free and voice-free fashion. It tracks the user’s facial gestures via a simple webcam and translates them into mouse commands for precise and responsive mouse control. A user can initiate a click, scroll or drag by simply smiling. This kind of hands-free control can be very useful for millions of people around the world who experience difficulties in using their hands due to disabilities such as spinal cord injury, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS and carpal tunnel syndrome.
