A research group at The University of Electro-Communications is developing an interface to detect tongue movement using the Kinect Interface. This interface is intended mainly for training the oral muscles including the tongue only. It is especially made for those people who have oral motor function disorders affecting their ability to speak or swallow.

Students at the University of Electro-Communications in Japan has developed a device. They call it ‘SITA.’ At first, a Kinect detects the user’s face and eyes.
