Looking at the possibilities of using an advanced motion sensor / processor to allow a less-able-bodied person to control a computer.

For example, if an individual was to be partially paralysed, then an advanced motion sensing device like the one fitted to the PiXi could be used to detect limited movement and use this to (say) provide a user interface function to a computer.

The ability of the PiXi motion sensor to be detatched from the main board gives some scope for playing around with these sensors in all sorts of experimental conditions.
