Samsung has launched a new eye tracking mouse which is designed to be used by people with disabilities, the Samsung EYECAN+, this is the company’s second generation eye tracking mouse.
The Samsung EYECAN+ works when the user is located between 60cm and 70cm from the monitor, the mouse can be used in a seated position and also when someone is lying down.
EYECAN+ is the result of a voluntary project initiated by our engineers, and reflects their passion and commitment to engage more people in our community,” said SiJeong Cho, Vice President of Community Relations at Samsung Electronics. While Samsung will not commercialize EYECAN+, the company will manufacture a limited quantity to donate to charity organizations. Both the technology and design of EYECAN+ will soon be made open source, and made accessible to companies and organizations that wish to commercialize the eye mouse.
The mouse comes with a total of 18 different commands that control various functions including scrolling, zooming, copying and pasting and many more.
