eye tracking technology
Use your eyes to control your computer
Eye control technology opens up the world for people with complex physical disabilities, who might otherwise be unable to do much independently. Using their eyes to control the mouse, people can type, browse the Internet, paint, make music, play games, communicate, send e-mail, work, control appliances around the home - or anything else they want to do.
How does it work?
Eye trackers consist of a computer, a small infrared light and a camera. The light illuminates your pupils, while the special camera mounted near the screen tracks your eye movements. Clever software then turns those into mouse movements on the screen.
You can move the mouse by moving your eyes! An on-screen keyboard allows you to type with your eyes. Holding your eyes still over your target for a moment is how you select the letter you want.
There is really no limit to what you can do with your eyes; some people have even become eye-gaze artists, painting and selling their artwork! Others continue to work and run businesses using full Windows access.
Eye tracking can run on laptops, tablets and All-in-one PC's, but it is important to select the right solution to meet your needs. Mounting and positioning the computer impacts how comfortably it can be used.
Our advisors will listen to your requirements and help you choose.
Who can use an Eye Tracker?
Adults and children, people of any eye colour, with glasses or contact lenses, and even people who only have one eye can all use eye tracking.
People who find it more comfortable
Eye control is frequently used because it is faster and more comfortable than other methods.
