WinkyMote Lets You Change Channels by Blinking Your Eye

New technologies are giving people with paralysis more independence than ever before. We've previously seen a computer controlled with a tongue and a wheelchair steered with facial muscles. The WinkyMote uses a similar approach: it allows a user to control an object by blinking.

Katia Vega, a doctoral student in computer science, developed it for a man affected by quadriplegia. It interacts with common devices for which one would use remote controls, such as televisions. It's translucent, so it blends in with the surrounding skin.
