Eye Tracking and Art Creation for the Mobility Challenged Hackathon
On February 3, an interdisciplinary team of University of Regina researchers, including Christian Riegel, Megan Smith, Katherine Robinson and Randy Johner, held a Hackathon which invited people with mobility challenges to explore the potential of eye tracking technology to create art. The U of R team is working in collaboration with Carleton University’s Visual Simulation Lab and is supported by a Connection Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. Its research involves close engagement with the local community. Follow-up events are planned and will be announced on the HRI website. News stories providing more information about the eye tracking hackathon as well as interviews with the researchers are available at the following links.
