Apple has added an interesting new accessibility option in iOS 7 that allows make the left or right head movement act as a home button, start Siri, open Notification Center, open the App Switcher, decrease volume, increase volume, or simply tap. The option can be found in the Switch Control section under Accessibility, which is meant for users who need assistance with physical and motor movements.

9to5Mac was first to spot the discovery, Within the Accessibililty settings of the iOS 7 beta 2 there is a toggle to enable a new head tracking feature, it’s not hidden whatsoever, just follow Settings –> General –> Accessibility –> Switches –> Switch Source. As you can see, you can use the head movements to navigate the device, If you planning to give it a shot then it is also important to point out that enabling the switch control feature disable touch input, so proceed with caution.
