Gaze Control In Gaming – With An Added Twist! July 8, 2009Posted by Jon Ward in eye tracking, Media, Tobii, Uncategorized, Usability & UX.
Acuity ETS are very pleased to be helping Jonathan O’Donovan, an MSc student from Trinity College in Dublin, with his project looking at combining gaze interaction in gaming along with voice control and speech recognition. We have given him the use of a T60 eye tracking unit and with a combination of the incredibly flexible Tobii SDK (software development kit) and Jonathan ability with other pieces of software he is putting together a game which will hopefully allow fully hands free interaction! The benefits of this type of project are far reaching, from gaming opportunities for disabled users, through to fully interactive GUI’s and work interfaces, PC desktops and much more. Jonathan has his own development blog here : http://navonodo.blogspot.com/ and we will be keeping you up to date on the Acuity ETS blog.
If you have a similar project in mind, can think of an application that may benefit from the work Jonathan is doing or have a general enquiry about any Tobii product then please feel free to contact Acuity on email@example.com or call us on 01189 000796.
