Eye-Gaze and more on Xbox 360, XBone, PS3 & PS4

Eye Gaze on Xbox One: Playing Forza Horizon 2 using eye-gaze with The Eye Tribe, Titan One and Alt-Controller. Development work with SpecialEffect.org.uk and OneSwitch.org.uk

Above is eye-gaze control of an Xbox One, part of the research and development I'm carrying out with SpecialEffect and in OneSwitch time. Very excited to have jointly found a way for one-switch, two-switch, eye-gaze, head-trackers and other mixed methods to take control of PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. I aim to share these methods in the near future. Meanwhile here's some geekery for those interested in the technology side....

The brains of the controller is a Windows PC. If using an EyeTribe eye-tracker, you'll need a USB 3.0 port. The link-up hardware is a Titan One adapter (XIM4 may be possible in the future I'm told). Then anything you can connect as PC standard controls more or less.

The software is currently the Eye Tribe UI in mouse mode, Alt-Controller (the grid you see on the right side) sending mouse/keyboard events to GTuner MaxAim D.I. with a modification to the config file. I'm looking to pull in extra utilities which will bring a huge amount of extra power (a bit like this controller with gaming redux methods). And yes, it's a lot of hoops to jump through to make something accessible, no doubt about it. One day all this will be completely unnecessary.

    This is interesting work and I'd like to follow it up with you if possible.

    My seven year old son has quadriplegic CP and can't access gaming systems. He is cognitively aware and very bright, so finding a way for him to play on my PS4 or the old PS3 used as a DVD player downstairs would be great.

    Feel free to send me an e-mail (go to my web-site OneSwitch.org.uk to find address). On the cusp of all kinds of possibilities these days.
