Scientists at the Technology Transfer Unit Tepic, the Ensenada Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education (CICESE), developed software for people with motor and visual disabilities which give them the ability to paint or play music with their eyes.

Ismael Espinosa, Doctor in Computer Science and CICESE UT3 researcher said that by eye tracking, visually impaired people can create paintings or designs.

"They can do it by throwing virtual balls of paint to a canvas, or they can create paintings on canvas that include background images," he said.

In the case of the music application, users, through eye-tracking, can play sequences of musical notes with different instruments such as piano, guitar, or drums, he added.

On the latter, the scientist said that the system will help people to play popular songs through the deployment of musical notes.

Both projects allow interfaces using eye-tracking, people interact with a computer through the movement of their eyes, with their own creations that can be shared via social networks. (With information from El Imparcial)
