iTracker is too cool!

I did a google search for an iSight eye tracking program last week and found iTracker. A sweet little program for the Mac (and PC) that is cheap ($30 for the Mac version) and runs quite well! It is lacking in a few functions, but according to the developer, they are adding them in the next release, but for basic head mouse users, or to just add to your tool box of things to have on hand it is quite functional and worthwhile to have on hand!

Here is some video of me using it with Speaking Dynamically Pro on an iMac. Sorry for the poor quality!
More video of it in use with student soon.
"High-end" technology for the masses! Hurray!

Super Quick Post


First product using wide format printer:
I recently began working with a teenager with a traumatic brain injury and thought I would try an eye gaze board with her. I created this by modifying information I found at http://www.cogain.org/faq/eye-gaze-communication-board, printing it out 2x on 11x17 paper instead of modifying both pages, and cutting out the second copy and gluing it to the appropriate spots on the back of the first copy. I won't go into any more details about client for privacy reasons, but I think the board looks pretty cool! And my printer can print up to 13x19. Psych! It's what every living room needs. This is the printer I bought for $40 at the WB Mason warehouse!
