Tongue control with low profile, passive mouth tags is demonstrated as a human–device interface by communicating values of tongue-tag

found to increase dramatically after short training sequences with errors falling close to 1% in magnitude with zero missed targets. The

significance of the work is that innovative very unobtrusive, wireless tags can be used to provide intuitive human–computer interfaces

devices such as computer mice or wheelchairs could be possible for tetraplegics and others who retain fine motor control capability of

no need for tongue piercings.
