Eye Deal

A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a technology that records signals from the nervous system and harnesses them to control various technologies. The Strentrode is a novel BCI technology that has the potential to restore functional computer use in people with severe paralysis. Stentrode technology pairs with Tobii eye-tracking technology to enable cursor control with eye movements and multiple brain-controlled “click” functions.
Our team is tasked to create a fun, engaging video game that utilizes the Tobii Eye Tracker 5, paired with a mouse “click” command that can eventually be controlled by brain signal. The goal of the game is to provide an engaging environment to familiarize guests with the eye tracker and click functionalities, which may eventually be expanded to prospective BMI users. The gamified environment will progressively train the patient and provide analytics to the researchers for precision, accuracy, smoothness, and reaction time with the eye-tracking technology and click commands.
Our clients David Putrino is a researcher at Putrino Lab that operates out of the Abilities Research Center at Mount Sinai Hospital, Adam Fry is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital and Dev is a postdoctoral researcher at Carnegie Mellon University.
