BreathBird : Breath activated scanning input comes to iPad

Techcrunch report on the (free) BreathBird twitter app for the iPad.

BreathBird employs the well honed concept of ‘scanning‘ that’s been used for alternate input selection on software like on-screen scanning keyboards for years and applies it in a fresh way to this iPad app, using breath as the trigger rather than a switch.

I’m unaware of any other apps using the scanning keyboard input method, so this may be a first on the iPad.

Taking the concept further… how about using the front-facing camera of the iPad 2 to ‘view’ and sense a blink as the trigger. Now there’s a project.
