Opera Face Gestures

Tired of constant clicking and scrolling the mouse? Why don’t you try navigating with your face instead?

On 1st April 2009, Opera Labs introduced the Face Gestures, a revolutionary technology allowing the user to interact with the latest Opera web browser by making face gestures. 

All you need is a webcam and the latest Opera browser. Once you press F8 key, you can go forward, back, open the new tab and take many other actions by simply blinking, shaking and turning your head. By using an internal technology dubbed Face Observation Opera Language, Opera is able to recognize pre-determined facial expressions and match them to commands on the Opera browser.

Take a look at this video demonstrating Face Gestures in action:
