Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology–those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs.
If you are interested in gaming at all you need to check out GazePlay. Gaze Play opens up a wide world of gaming for poly-disabled people with limited use of their limbs or voices. The free, open-source software grants users access to nearly 60 games playable with an eye tracker.
GazePlay works on Windows, MacOS and Linux. Moreover, it can be used with all eye trackers that allow mouse movement. These include:
Tobii: Tobii EyeX, I-12 and Tobii 4C (Windows)
Eye Tribe: Eye Tribe Tracker (Windows and MacOS)
The games are simple, easy and fun. Players can use their eye gaze to whack moles, throw cream pies, battle robots, destroy aliens, make their way through mazes and much more. In addition, the software includes more practical exercises like memory games and math problems.
Check out the Gazeplay.net to learn more!
