Camera Mouse

Camera Mouse Technology is a free program that was developed at Boston College that allows users to control the mouse by simply tracking the movement of their head. For example, users can click on an icon by resting on the icon for a predetermined amount of time.  Camera Mouse is for anyone with purposeful head movement that may not have full use of their hands. To use camera mouse, all you need is a Windows PC and a webcam. Some new features include a pause feature, right-clicking, and an improved way to specify an exclude zone.

EagleEyes

EagelEye is for any individual who may have little to no muscular control, but can control the movement of their eyes. EagleEye is an innovative technology developed at Boston College that acts as a mouse replacement system. By placing five electrodes on the head of users, the program translates the signal received from the electrodes into the position of the mouse pointer on the screen. Users are able to navigate a computer screen by simply moving their eyes. This technology allows users to play games, discover new things, and ultimately progress in education and towards meaningful communication.
