Camera Mouse

Camera Mouse Technology is a free program that was developed at Boston College that allows users to control the mouse by simply tracking the movement of their head. For example, users can click on an icon by resting on the icon for a predetermined amount of time.  Camera Mouse is for anyone with purposeful head movement that may not have full use of their hands. To use camera mouse, all you need is a Windows PC and a webcam. Some new features include a pause feature, right-clicking, and an improved way to specify an exclude zone.
