Eye Control is a technology in Windows 10 that could allow you to use your eyes to control an on-screen mouse, keyboard and text-to-speech experience.
This is a technology that empowers people with limited mobility.
As part of the National Disability Employer Awareness Month (NDEAM), Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella has shared a demo video showing the capabilities enabled by the APIs (Application Programming Interface) associated with the Eye Control. Thanks to an additional Eye Drive Library, which emulates a joystick via eye tracking, the video shows prototypes of a remote-controlled car and an electric wheelchair, which can then both be controlled by eye tracking. Those are research prototypes designed to illustrate how this technology can be used to empower people, and appeal to developers and makers to download these open source libraries and see what you can do.
Microsoft encourages developers and eye tracking device manufacturers to harness the power of eye control for their own applications and products to enhance accessibility and utilize a new mode of interacting with a Windows-based computer.
