Headset which is speech enabler

The idea is to develop a head worn device that will interpret facial movements and translate them into speech.
The system will consist of small magnets inside the mouth and on the tongue which will create a magnetic field. Sensors attached to the headset will be able to detect changes in the field and translate the motion into words.
The device could also be improved by developing magnets that can be implanted in the tongue, as well as reducing the headset to the size of a Bluetooth device.
