Speaking with Your Eyes

People with speech disabilities could soon be speaking with their eyes. Building on a technology originally intended to help ESA astronauts, Ivo Vieira, used augmented reality to create the eye tracking technology used in EyeSpeak glasses, which helps people with speech disabilities communicate.

The EyeSpeak glasses detect eye movement across a virtual keyboard displayed on its lenses. The wearer can use the keyboard to write what will be spoken by a speaker worn on the arm. Moreover, the wearer can access content on the internet including email. All the information is overlaid on the lenses so the user can still see their environment.
