Create inexpensive device for controlling the PC with eyes

A team of researchers from published a paper (forthcoming) where they explain how to build a system for monitoring Eyes of low cost (the price of parts total about U.S. $35) and to perform tasks such as controlling a mouse, write a message and even play using Eye movements.

The system uses two cameras mounted on a telescope that records the movement of the eyes, the winks that will interpret as the click of a mouse (known as the problem of ‘ Midas touch ‘), and also detect changes in depth of field of view using hardware of video game consoles on the market.

The team has been working on the project since 2010 , when was the first time you were able to use his invention to play Pong. Today, to promote the publication of their paper, they released a new video with the old and renowned game and showing the potential of low-cost machine.

No doubt the device will be a great help for disabled people, and while some experience with the nervous system of Stephen Hawking , these English researchers were able to create a 800 times cheaper than the machines available in the market for eye tracking.
