Severely paralyzed people can use these glasses to control a computer

Recently we featured a Quadcopter for people with disabilities that could be controlled by brain. And now some scientists in Britain have developed brain interface glasses which will help people with severe disabilities to control a computer with their eyes. So much innovation everywhere around, isn’t it? This device costed just $65 in making.

Computer controlling glasses

Dr Aldo Faisal, professor of Neurotechnology at Imperial College and his student William Abbott created the device. It is able to move cursor in the screen just as a mouse does but with use of glasses that a user is wearing. The system consists of two hi-tech cameras and some software processing which allows the wearer to control the computer only by his eyes. The device converts user’s eyes movements to commands for the computer.
