Luis Cruz just graduated from high school but don’t let his young age fool you, he is already developing some very serious systems. His low cost eye tracking system uses Electrooculography to detect the movements of a person’s eyes. This then allows a person to control an electronic or computer system just by looking around. He has also received some CNN coverage, see the CNN video below.

Read about the Eyeboard here.

“The eyeboard is an open source project that I built in order to help people with disabilities. My circuit detects the eye movements using the technology called “Electrooculography”. Which consists in detecting the resting potential that exists between the retina and the cornea by using skin electrodes around the eyes.

Using analogue and digital electronics, and applying the correct interface to this concept, I can control anything I wish just with the eyes!”
