Concept For Smart Glasses That Can Control Devices Via Nose Gestures

An innovative idea in assisting computers and smartphones.


Computer scientists from KAIST University in South Korea, Keio University in Japan, the University of St Andrews in Scotland and the Georgia Institute of Technology in the US have developed a concept for smartglasses that can control a device by picking up on the users gestures to their own nose.

The smartglasses, which would look like a regular pair of glasses, are able to decipher the difference between when the user holding their nose, rubbing it, or flicking it. These different gestures would be picked up by electrooculography (EOG) sensors located on the bridge and nose pads of the glasses, and could signal a device, like your phone, to skip a song, turn up the volume, or rewind.
