Google has unveiled a new gaming-oriented project that allows users to control a mouse solely through facial movements. They call it “Project Gameface,” and it was developed in collaboration with gamer Lance Carr, who suffers from muscular dystrophy, a group of diseases that weaken the body’s muscles.
