Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CONTROLLING AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE WITH A FACIAL GESTURE CONTROLLER
Abstract:
A facial gesture controller for controlling an electronic device is provided. The facial gesture controller includes a body, a plurality of sensors, and at least one processor. The body is configured to fit over the face of a user. The plurality of sensors are disposed on the body. The at least one processor is in electrical communication with the sensors. The sensors generate and transmit electrical signals to the at least one processor in response to movements of one or more facial muscles of the user. The at least one processor generates and transmits control signals corresponding to the electrical signals, received from the sensors, to the electronic device.
