Engineers created a device that uses video game equipment is mass produced. The tool allows disabled people to control computers, with only through eye movements.

As quoted from Dawn on Monday, priced video game equipment at under $ 30, gadget consists of two cameras video game consoles, each costing less than $ 10. According to the developer team from Imperial College London, the camera was installed outside the line of vision on a pair of regular glasses.

Based on the information written in the Journal of Neural Engineering, the working principle of such tools is quite simple. The camera eye movements convey to the computer wirelessly via Wi-Fi or USB and uses only one watt of power.

In this way, users will be able to control the cursor on the screen like a computer mouse. "We have achieved two things, we have built a 3D eye tracking system hundreds of times less expensive than commercial systems. Then use the tool to create a brain machine interface in real time," says co-author, Aldo Faisal.

According to him, this tool is an innovation that can help people. Not only for those who suffered paralysis, but also all those who want to use it.

"This is a saving innovation, develops software and hardware to create devices that help people around the world," he added.

He further said, that made this device allows patients to interact more smoothly. Besides faster than the technology that requires an electrode implanted in the brain, even the tools are much more expensive.

"We show, using video hardware that games are mass produced, it can produce binocular eye-tracker with a lower cost," he said. Subject performance, device by Imperial College London has a quality similar to commercial systems, but has 800 times the cost of a lot cheaper.

Bring technology is expected to help the recovery at several levels, such as people with multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, muscular dystrophy and spinal cord injury or amputation.
