(Newser) – New technology is allowing those in wheelchairs take more control of their lives. It's called the Tongue Drive System, and it helps people who are paralyzed in all four limbs to control their wheelchair by a tongue-ring looking magnetic sensor and a headset. But, if you think that alone is cool, then you'll be even more impressed to know it can do much, much more. The tongue-ring sensor allows users to make phone calls, play video games, and even turn on lights.
