Designing User Experiences with Eye Tracking

Eduardo Velloso Lecturer, Researcher University of Melbourne

In recent years, we have witnessed a revolution in eye tracking technologies. Eye trackers that used to cost tens of thousands of dollars, requiring awkward head-mounts and convoluted calibration procedures now cost less than a few hundred dollars and are simple to set up and easy to use. As technology decreases in size and cost, it is easy to envision a world in which eye trackers will ship by default with interactive appliances, similarly to how any phone or laptop now comes with an integrated webcam.

This context creates a need for principles that guide the design of interactive systems that take input from the eyes. This talk will explore the principles of gaze that make it such a compelling way of interacting with computers and mobile devices.

Eduardo Veloso is a Lecturer at the School of Computing and Information Systems at the University of Melbourne. Previously, he was a Research Fellow at the Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from Lancaster University and a BSc in Computer Engineering from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro.

His research aims at creating future social user experiences combining novel input modalities such as gaze, body movement, touch gestures, etc. His latest work has investigated eye-based interaction with smart watches, multimodal combinations of gaze, and eye control of video games.
