WASHINGTON Air VaporMax 97 UK , July 29 (Xinhua) -- Just imagine blinking your eyes to get all things done.

Chinese researchers have designed a new sensor that, when attached to a pair of glasses, can detect the motion of an intentionally closing eye, enabling a range of hands-free tasks, including typing or turning a light on and off.

"The technique can be considered as having 'a third hand'," Professor Chenguo Hu of Chongqing University Air VaporMax CS UK , one of the study authors, told Xinhua.

Hu said the newly designed sensor may one day help people with locked-in syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease, and other disabilities, to communicate and perform everyday tasks.

Past approaches to detect eye movement have largely relied on body surface bioelectrical signals Air VaporMax Flyknit UK , which are very weak and unreliable, she said.

In the new study, Hu and colleagues designed a sensor based on the so-called triboelectric nanogenerator, or TENG, to detect the motion of the skin around the corners of eyes, which she said "has never been considered as a good trigger signal source."

"When the TENG sensor is attached to the inside of an eyeglasses frame Air VaporMax Laceless UK , the miniscule muscle movement of a closing eye momentarily pushes the sensor's layers together, generating an electrical signal that can be reliably measured," according to the study published this week by the U.S. journal Science Advances.

"Compared to past approaches, the new sensors achieve impressive sensitivity in low-cost, highly adaptive devices that can be fabricated in a variety of forms," the study said.

Importantly Air VaporMax Off White UK , the sensor can distinguish between unintentional blinks and deliberate ones, it said.

When the glasses are connected to a computer screen, the wearer can blink as a cursor passes over different keys, typing out a message like "Hello TENG."

"Excellent performance of this system could be proof for the msTENG (sensor) as a supersensitive sensor to be applied in computer control," Hu's paper wrote.

"We believe that on the basis of the msTENG, many kinds of mechnosensational computer games will spring out to make life more fascinating."

The researchers also designed their sensor-equipped glasses to initiate other daily tasks Air VaporMax Womens UK , such as turning a light on and off and switching on a fan.

"Our work makes it possible to get a novel design concept of controlling electronic devices via eye blinks out of the lab to become part of our daily lives," Hu added.

PARIS, Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy on Saturday won the race to the leadership of crisis-hit conservative party Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), a step crucial to bid for the presidency in 2017.

In a first test of his political comeback, Sarkozy won 64.5 percent of votes followed by his two former ministers Bruno Le Maire and Herve Mariton who collected 29.18 percent and 6.32 percent of votes respectively.

A total 155 Air VaporMax Mens UK ,851 of the party's 268,231 members casted their online votes which started Friday evening.

The vote was slowed by "organized" cyber attack on the election website on Friday, said Luc Chatel, UMP Secretary General, adding the party had lodged a complaint with Paris police.

"This vote represents a new start of our political family. We have to be united and to focus on seeking new solutions for France. With these two conditions we give back hope to our nationals," UMP new leader wrote on his facebook account shortly after the results release.

The 59-year-old conservative leader proposed to reform the right-wing party Air VaporMax Plus Womens UK , weakened by corruption and internal rifts, to create " a vast rally which will address all the French, without partisanship, beyond the traditional divisions which no longer correspond to any reality today."

With French President Francois Hollande's approval rating being at a record low on rising public anger over unfruitful policy, Sarkozy eyes with UMP leadership to book a ticket to the Elysee Palace in 2017, betting on his political credentials and dynamism which earned him in 2007 the highest popularity ratings of any leader since Charles de Gaulle.

However Air VaporMax Plus Mens UK , the former president's political future remains uncertain and could be tainted by a series of corruption probe that could be a setback to his comeback after failing to win a second term in 2012.

Last July, the conservative politician has been placed under such a judicial probe for the second time for influence peddling. The first was in 2013 after being charged with taking financial advantages from the elderly French billionaire Liliane Bettencourt, the heiress of L'Oreal group. But magistrates later dropped the case against him.

PARIS, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Two out of three French voters said that they will not back the candidacy of the embattled ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy in the next presidential election in 2017 amid corrution probe, a survey showed on Saturday.

A BVA poll for the news channel I tele and the daily Le Parisien said 65 percent of respondents did not want to see the conservative politician competing in the race to the Elysee. Full story
