You would need to have some type of hardware device capable of that in the first place, which is by far the most challenging aspect of your design
If you are unable to find such a device you might be able to substitute a microphone, which has been done to detect the player blowing on something
It would probably be supported by DirectX if it did exist, in which case you could check out the documentation as to how to collect input from it
The process is not terribly complicated, as you can see here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee416842(v=vs.85).aspx
