Breath Dasher

Fri 15/8/03

Today I made our first useable breath-controlled writing system. The physical bit is built out of a belt, an optical mouse, and a little elastic; the software bit is Dasher working in its one-dimensional mode.

There's a lot more that could be optimized, but the good news is that I can easily write at ten words per minute already.
