Tongue Driver

With funding from the National Science Foundation, Maysan Ghovanloo at Georgia Tech designs technology that allows disabled people to control everything - from wheelchairs to computers - with their tongue!  We visit his lab and meet Jason DiSanto, who is paralyzed from the neck down.  DiSanto is testing the tongue controller by navigating his wheelchair around a small course.
