Thought I'd forward this - good thing to add to Game-Accessibility.com I 
would say...


Hi Barrie,

Thanks for your email. Our eye tracker can be used to control computer games 
in different ways.

With our eye control application MyTobii (designed for people with limited 
mobility), you can control the cursor with your eyes. The cursor simply 
follows your fixations on the monitor. This eye control can often be used in 
simple games. More advanced games that use DirectX often "take over" the 
cursor control from Windows.

You can also use our Software Development Kit (SDK) to develop eye 
controlled games from scratch.

I've tried the game you mentioned with MyTobii. It works - I'm able to 
control the object with my eyes. Unfortunately, since I control the cursor 
with the eyes, it comes right in the way of the object. This can be a bit 
distracting.

If you're interested in eye controlled computer games, you can have a look 
at my thesis report at:

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Erika Jönsson
