Programmer Creates a Face-Controlled Keyboard

There are facial recognition systems that allow users to input data, such as blinking eyes. But programmer Everything Is Hacked wanted more options. He’s a new father, so he wants a way to type code silently so that he doesn’t disturb his baby. The result of his work is CheekyKeys.

The facial recognition software assigns letters and coding commands to a variety of discrete facial gestures. This is slower than blinking, but is less exhausting.

Everything Is Hacked then put his system to a serious stress test: he attended a virtual coding interview in which he demonstrated the system to, I gather, a interviewer who did not know that he wasn’t using a keyboard.
