I've been trying out the new MyGaze eye tracker from Inclusive Technology.

Looks like it's going to be a very useful and affordable tool for therapy departments, schools and individual pupils, with the basic package of the eye tracker and EyeMouse Play software coming in at £875.

Of course, you then need to decide which software to purchase, depending on your client(s) and buy additional equipment to use it on e.g. monitor (attached to your laptop), mounting plate, table/floor stand. But you're still looking at under £2000.

 

Trying it for the first time, I really like the easy calibration and setup and the 'goggles' and visual prompt of red, amber, green within the positioning guide, so you know easily how to improve positioning.

I've found that even a 1 point calibration enables me to access single left click 'Switch IT' type activities, Target and Touch, Choose IT Maker activities through to grid-based communication software. This is done by mouse emulation only. I've also found that using my own 1 point calibration with a variety of software is more accurate than using someone else's 9 point calibration.

I also like how you can set up keyboard shortcuts to features such as increase/decrease dwell time, pause eye gaze, and positioning guide (track status) so that these can be adjusted and fine-tuned without going in and out of the software you're using!

On first impressions, very user friendly and accurate. Looking forward to trying it out with some clients now-watch this space!
