Here’s a neat demo-video courtesy of Engadget showing off Zyxio’s new breathing-based PC controller.

A novel mouse-alternative, the Sensawaft features a sensor which converts the direction, length and strength of your breathing into commands for the PC cursor. It takes some getting used to according to Engadget’s Paul Miller, but he was getting to grips with the device within a few minutes.

Lots of potential uses here for the disabled or those with accessibility difficulties, not to mention perhaps medical uses where a third hand would be…handy. Keeping in mind the low suggested price range of $70, this is also far more affordable than other accessibility-designed PC control units.
