Eye tracking tablet to assist the disabledEye-tracking technology with a computer is old hat, and it has been around for some time in different forms, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t cool or helpful. In fact, a group of engineering students at Brigham Young University managed to come up with a computer setup which allows one to control all movement using one’s eye movement alone. The system is 2″ thin and 10″ long, where it will be powered by the Windows 7 operating system, but we’re not too sure whether the disabled would want to fork out up to $1,500 for this – just to use a tablet device or computer hands-free. Of course, when you think about it, the system’s price here is a bargain compared to commercial systems which can cost a minimum of $14,000. We’re quitr sure the Tobii Eye-tracking glasses would be able to do a decent job as well.
