Now the ability to draw or build something we envisioned is open to everyone, whether they have use of their hands or not.
Dr. Tim Holmes of the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway in England has created computer software to manipulate building blocks and crayons. His new software will use an eye-tracker instead of a keyboard, mouse, or a hand-held joy stick to enable the user to create a unique, full color computer drawing of a dinosaur using only eye movements.
The software has been tested on a small sample of persons, but Dr. Holmes wants to test it now on a large population of diverse users. So the program will be available from July 19th until end September 2011 at the Science Museum in London for any visitor to try out the technology.
