"This application--called Nouse, for nose as a mouse--tracks the movements
of your nose, and was developed by Dmitry Gorodnichy. You can play NosePong,
a nose-driven version of the Pong video game, or test your ability to paint
with your nose or to write with your nose." "Recent Advances in Computer
Vision," Massimo Picardi and Tony Jan, The Industrial Physicist, Vol. 9, No.
1, Feb-Mar 2003,

"A computer vision scientist at the National Research Council of Canada made
headlines a couple of months ago with the introduction of the nouse--a
system that allows for cursor control by tracking the tip of the user's
nose." "Communications of the ACM" (Association for Computing Machinery),
Vol. 48, No. 1, Jan 2005, p. 9.
