Mimi Switch promises wireless face-controlled gadget operability in 2-3 years

090308-mimiswitch-02Fumbling with the tiny controls of an iPod is so archaic. The Mimi Switch is a new IR sensor headphone that lets you control music with facial expressions. Created by an Osaka University researcher, it’s basically a hands-free universal remote that can operate everything from a music player to household appliances. Of course, the thing still needs work–it’s not wireless yet, and its controls are limited. But pretty soon, your morning will be like this: Wink for coffee, wide-eyed for laundry, squint for tunes. You still have to fold your own shirts though.
