Control Your Mouse Pointer With Body Gesture

Control Your Mouse Pointer With Body Gesture
The title Control Your Mouse Pointer With Body Gesture seems to be strange but now it is really possible to use your mouse without touching it...!! An application called Camera Mouse has made it possible.
In my previous posts, I told you how to control music in android using hand gestures and how to control music in computer using hand gesture. Let's know something about Camera Mouse also.
Actually the application "Camera Mouse" was developed in Boston College keeping this fact in mind that it will help the people who are physically disabled and want to work on computers. This program is very helpful for those people whose hands are not working properly but they can move their heads. People suffering from Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, various neurological disorders can use this program to operate computers, either laptops or desktops. This program supports Windows platform. Camera Mouse can replace your mouse and can works with any software. This application is totally free of cost and you can download Camera Mouse from this link.

Be sure the computer is on a table or desktop rather than on your lap or the bed. You need to have a built-in webcam (or standard USB webcam on or near the monitor so it is pointing at you).

Start up Camera Mouse. Your moving image will appear in the Camera Mouse window. Use the mouse to click on a feature on your face to track. Some unique area of the face. We usually use the inside edge of an eyebrow or eye or the area between the nose and the mouth. A small green square appears at the feature being tracked. As you move your head the square moves with it in the image.

Now press the Ctrl key or the F9 key or just wait for 4 seconds without moving the mouse ("Auto start"). The Camera Mouse program takes over control of the mouse pointer on the screen. As you move your head the mouse pointer moves accordingly. If you move the mouse itself (or press the Ctrl key or F9 key) the control returns to the mouse.

You can adjust the settings by clicking on the Camera Mouse Settings button at the bottom of the window. Here you can change the gains and turn on clicking. Clicking is done using "dwell time," by holding the mouse pointer within a small area of the screen for a second or two. Or you can click in the regular way using the mouse button or a switch.
