[In]Brace allows users to control a computer with their tongue #WearableWednesday
The possibility to communicate with this type of device could be useful for people with certain disabilities, Via DeZeen
Graduate designer Dorothee Clasen has invented a wearable device that is worn in the mouth to operate a computer using the tongue.
Designed for her master’s degree at Köln International School of Design, [In]Brace is made from a custom dental retainer fitted with a ball with a magnet on a set of rails on the underside. A wire connects from the brace to a Wi-Fi transmitter that hooks behind the ear.
