7:00PM - 8:00PM - Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You: Eye Tracking Revealed

Eye tracking a.k.a. gaze interaction is a lesser known type of natural user interface that is on the verge of going mainstream. While known to some for user research and analysis, Tobii Eye Tracking (the industry leader) has enabled more than 10,000 people with disabilities to communicate and control their computers with their eyes via “gaze interaction”.

In the coming year, gaze interaction will be available to consumers to improve everyday computer interaction and add new dimensions to how they relate to content and applications.

Barbara Barclay, General Manager, Tobii Technology North America will provide a road map to the future of global eye tracking and gaze interaction over the coming 1-2 years, including examples of best practices in gaze interaction and a sneak peek into the forthcoming consumer eye tracking peripheral announced at CES in January 2013.

This presentation will educate and inspire developers and usability professionals who are looking for ways to plan for the dramatic changes eye tracking will bring to everyday human/computer interaction.

To get to WeWork Labs: The entrance to WeWork is on Charlton Street. You'll enter through a black door that says WeWork on it, go straight up several steps and go through another door. Then, you'll see the elevators to your left. Go to the 4th floor. The Meetup sign in desk will be right there as you exit the elevator.

    Is there a time when the elevator stops running? I came late last time and the elevator wouldn't take me up...
