Tobii PCEye Go

Tobii, the world leader in eye gaze and eye control technology, has just announced their most recent Windows computer access product the PCEye Go (Cost £2995). This replaces the PCEye and is 85% smaller (dimensions are 184 x 28 x 23 mm), powered with a single USB connection (no need to be plugged into the mains, making it a portable eye gaze solution) and is easy to use with either a standard monitor or laptop screen.

The PCEye Go has a simple mount with a slim magnetic mounting plate which is taped onto the bottom section of the monitor surround. This plate is designed to remain in place permanently, but given its slim design, should not interfere when laptop screens are closed.

Tobii’s product information describes the PCEye Go as being most suitable for monitor sizes under 19, but can be used with those up to 24.

Once we get our hands on one here at CALL Scotland, I’ll be keen to try it out with our different PCs including netbooks and tablets, with the potential for an even more portable communication solution for AAC users!

For those wishing to use eye gaze with a larger monitor, such as within a classroom environment, Tobii have announced that the PCEye Pro will be available later in the year. This is more than twice the length (dimensions are 400 x 28 x 23 mm) making it more suitable than the PC Eye Go for monitors sized 20 or larger, but is described as having an excellent suitability across a wide range of monitor sizes.

In the meantime, the PCEye Go ought to suit the requirements of most eye gaze users, whether a single user transporting between home and school/college/workplace, or swapping between users on the same site with different computers.

 

Inclusive Eye Gaze Learning Curve

Inclusive Technology, suppliers of special educational needs software, has just circulated details of a brand new Windows software suite, Inclusive Eye Gaze Learning Curve, described as:

"a collection of over 54 fun and engaging interactive activities specially created to teach early eye gaze access and develop choice making skills. This collection takes children on the learning curve from assessment and cause and effect understanding through to using eye gaze for communication, learning and leisure".

Useful for teachers and therapists as an eye gaze assessment and teaching tool, the suite comprises 3 CDs, titled Attention and Looking, Exploring and Playing, and Choosing and Learning. Together they are designed to help children to progress from their first steps in using eye gaze, by improving accuracy and understanding of eye gaze, in preparation for using communication and learning software.

With Inclusive Tecnology's excellent track record in providing hardware and software to help people with special needs, this ought to prove another valuable resource for a variety for professionals. 

Can't wait to try this out too!

Cost: £150 for each CD or all 3 for £399.
