Google's Project Gameface platform allows gamers to play videogames with head movements and facial gestures.

The goal is to open up gaming to people like Lance Carr, whose mobility is extremely limited by muscular dystrophy.

Google engineers created an open source gaming mouse that facilitates hand-free control by incorporating a commercially sold Web camera pointed at the user's face.

Machine learning models track 468 unique facial points, enabling Gameface to accurately detect head movements and deliberate facial gestures that can be translated into mouse clicks or other shortcuts.

Project Gameface also allows the adjustment of gesture size, so users limited to subtle face movements can operate it as well.
