Wheelchair controller for Paraplegics

Sniff to Steer: Nose aids wheelchair navigation

By having a person who is paralyzed use controlled blowing or sniffing thru their nose, a computer device can navigate a motorized wheelchair effectively. This is seriously simple tech that could be life changing for many if it gets mass produced.
