EVA Facial Mouse is a free app promoted by Vodafone Spain Foundation and developed by CREA Software Systems, which allows the user to control an Android™ device by tracking the face.

Based on the movement of the face captured through the front camera, the app allows the user to control a pointer on the screen (i.e., like a mouse), which provides direct access to most elements of the user interface.

EVA is intended for those who cannot use a touchscreen. For instance, some people with amputations, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or other disabilities may benefit from this app.

EVA Facial Mouse provides an alternative method for accessing a mobile device that does not require to use the touchscreen. Therefore, it provides an actual interaction channel for those who cannot use their hands. For some people, that would mean being able to use or not a mobile device.
