Ugh, stop twitching
eye-tracking

Eye tracking a technology I've wanted to work with for a while now. I had initially thought that it be a drop-in replacement for the mouse, but I wasn't thinking of controls like scroll bars, which you are definitely not looking at during use. It's still possible to use eye tracking as a mouse with some minor modifications, but to get the most out of it it would be best to scrap the mouse paradigm and work with an entirely new UI paradigm.

I'd like to work on one of those paradigm things myself, but they don't give a price for the hardware. They're selling a computer for quadriplegics for $17,000, though, and judging by the rest of the computer, the eye tracking hardware is probably at least $15,000.

A bit much. Don't have a birthday coming up, either.
