Lasers Controlled by Eye Tracking April 11, 2011

Game Developer Conference 2011 at Moscone Center in San Francisco – March 2-4, 2011

Now going on 4 years of attending GDC, this year EyeTech Digital Systems got some significant press for a few reasons:

  • The first laptop with built in eye-tracking was announced recently.
  • The Microsoft Kinect does motion tracking, eye-tracking is the next step, right?
  • Instead of just interacting on a monitor with eyes, why not command a laser?

Having been featured as the “Best Tech” of GDC 2011 by Destructoid’s overview of the GDC, EyeTech showed off its ability to track a person’s eyes in real-time and move a turret with a laser.  Within a fraction of a second of looking at a point on the wall, the laser moves to the exact spot!

A five second calibration routine makes the demo scary-accurate.  The built in IR camera in EyeTech’s hardware acquires the user’s eyes in a split second. The VT1 and the VT2 models were on display at this year’s GDC.

EyeTech’s robust image processing algorithms work with a large percentage of the population and even work with most people that wear glasses.  Two IR light sources reflect off the cornea of the eye and provide a reference for the eye tracker to measure where your pupil has moved.  After an initial mapping or calibration to the corners of the screen, your actual line of sight from each eye is calculated and X-Y data is outputted by EyeTech’s Quick Glance software.

Two attention drawing demos at the GDC that use the same technology include:

1. Connect To Your PC or TV with Eye Gesture Technology – EyeTech demoed how eye gesture technology will be in the PCs, TVs and Kiosks of the future.  Already installed in a number of museums and science centers, the demo shows off EyeTech’s Quick Exhibit interactive display software which features an automated calibration and eye games including:

  • Eye Remote – TV controlled with your eye movements
  • Eye Capture – Gaze tracking software with heat-map generation
  • Eye Game control – reaction game which scores you based on the speed of your eye response
  • Eye Type – keyboard for complete hands free computer mouse for TV and PCs

2. Research and Usability Testing: GazeTracker, one of the many research software packages that work with EyeTech’s hardware, showed how it can track a person’s interactions within websites, movies, games, user-interfaces, advertisements, etc.  First setup the usability test, then people go through and use or interact with the stimulus.  Then, a number of post processing steps can be done to find out how people use (or don’t use) your UI, advertisement or website.  Heat-maps, gaze-trails and other features show initial reactions and how people really use your products, not just where they move their mouse.

Gameplay of the future. Kiosks of the future.  Improved usability and advertising now.  EyeTech Digital Systems expects to be integrated into monitors, laptops, tablets, smart phones and even cars in the coming years.  Eye tracking is a game changer that is opening new doors and changing how people expect to interact with technology.

SIGGRAPH 2010 July 15, 2010

Booth: 1231
Location: Los Angeles Convention Center
Date: July 27-29, 2010

EyeTech will be demonstrating EyeTech’s Quick Link API and Quick Capture gaze analysis software which comes standard with purchase of an eye tracking system developer kit. This enables developers to integrate eye tracking into their own applications.

Quick Capture gaze analysis software is designed for small research projects of static images or videos to capture eye gaze data in real time. Inside the software there are three tabs (capture, playback, and slideshow). The capture and playback tabs enable researchers to save the data to a file or play it back in real time to analyze gaze patterns of small groups. The software is ideal of analyzing regions of interest on static images for product packaging, website landing pages, print advertising, billboards, etc. and is also convenient for analyzing commercials and movie trailers.

Quick Link API allows developers to integrate eye tracking into their own applications. Some of the data accessible through the API include: X,Y gaze position for each eye, pupil size, time stamp and other valuable eye metrics which are fully accessible for developers to use at their convenience in real time. The software is written in a standard C style DLL which allows for easy use with almost any programming language. Over the past decade many companies have integrated eye tracking seamlessly into their own application using EyeTech’s powerful and easy to use Quick Link API.
