My previous work on augmented reality (AR) and a simple train game caught the attention of COGAIN and associated members. COGAIN focuses specifically on promoting research and development within the field of gaze-based interaction. Some of the many beneficiaries of their work, are the people afflicted with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Using most common software programmes using gaze-interaction presents a significant challenge. Although gaze-interaction is improving on a daily basis, there is an interaction barrier introduced by the fact that almost no software natively supports gaze interaction. This lack of native support many games virtually unplayable as they depend on advanced input and real-time input.
The goal of this project was to fill some of this enormous void with a game researched and designed from the ground up, intended for people using gaze as their main method interaction.
