"The purpose of the EagleEyes Project is to help people with severe physical disabilities develop and be educated to their fullest by enabling them to access the computer." ~eagleeyes.org
The EagleEyes technology uses a set of five electrodes placed around the eyes to communicate eye movement through a computer, interpreting it as movement of a computer mouse. This technology allows people unable to move their head or arms to manipulate a computer mouse through eye movement. Several educational software programs have also been developed in conjuction with this technology.
EagleEyes is changing the lives of people with severe handicaps, unlocking their potential by opening communication and learning opportunities they would not otherwise have. EagleEyes is not just an educational resource, rather a doorway for these intelligent minds to interact with the world around them. EagleEyes allows the severely handicapped to further their education and in many cases is the only tool which allows them to communicate with their loved ones.
