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.
