Head mounted camera records what you look at Answered

The EyeSeeCam is a head-mounted device developed at the University of Munich Hospital that uses four cameras to record what your eyes are looking at. Two cameras are used to track your eyes, one records what your head is pointed at, and the last one uses the data from the first two cameras to record where they're looking.

The creators list some nice uses for this, but I keep thinking that this would be great for a first-person shooter. Or maybe something more altruistic like an interface for those with ALS that the EyeWriter was designed for.

Very interesting, but as with all of these research devices, it has got to get a whole lot smaller and less, um, outriggery, if non-geeks are going to be able to use it :-)

Thats why engineers and designers have to work together,

Not really, why? It's great, but I don't check it that often.

Yes, because stories like this never get cross posted from different sources...

 Aye.. but Caleb is pretty good at nabbing things fresh from hacker's blogs before other sites have a chance to "spam" their hacks. I've seen something posted on Hackaday, and then a WEEK later it's on other sites like hackedgadgets.com.

If it was much more subtle (as Kelseymh said), it would be funny to check the video after somebody wore it in sunglasses at beach...

It is very interesting to me, a graphic designer, when the user reads the book, to observe how ilustrations capture the eye first and the path then it follows. Thanks!

Wow, amazing what people can do. I could see this being some kind of tool for futuristic phycological brain analyzation. xD
