I have watched with envy the development of touchscreens. I cannot use my hands and fingers. I heard on the television an item about someone who had developed a long nose so that they can use their touchscreen in the bath.

Of course the people on the TV said “just get out of the bath” but it set me thinking that it is possible to use something like a long nose to push the images around the screen.

I can use my head, the screen needs to be far enough in front to be able to view it easily, a stick like pointer would need a guard if it was held by your mouth (like a babies dummy) to prevent choking.

I am sure there are lots of other design features required but I would love to be able to use a touchscreen.
