GT3D Glasses Will Make It Easier For Disabled To Interact With Computers (+VIDEO)
Researchers at the Imperial College in London have designed a special pair of glasses that will let people with limited mobility interact with a computer using only their eyes. The GT3D, is a pair of glasses with two cameras hooked on to the sides which keep track of the wearer’s eye movements; the changing positions of their pupils are recorded and transformed into a computer input — just how a mouse or trackball would. The smart device can measure the depth of where a wearer is looking, thus in future it might be applied for controlling or driving a wheelchair, just by focusing on a spot in the distance where the wearer wants to go. Furthermore the wearer could move prosthetic arms and even make them gesture just by the movement of their eyes. Watch the video below to see the effectiveness of the technology by playing Pong.
