A bit late with this, but seeing SpecialEffect's eyebrow control article (http://www.specialeffect.org.uk/specialeffect-news/browbeating) reminded me, the accessibility winner at Melbourne's goal game jam from January this year was eyebrow controlled rhythm/dance game. Same principle as eyebrow switches, but using post it notes and a webcam:

Not everyone had the eyebrow dexterity to be able to play well but everyone had bucketloads of fun trying, they had a constant crowd of grinning people playing and watching.


Eyebrows aside, the principle would obviously work with any other two switch / two input setup, a nice example of how much fun can be had with greatly reduced controls. Reminds me a lot of Steve Spohn's "I would" story from Includification, about Rock Band.
