We are a research and development organization focused on applications that integrate custom software and electronics with low-cost, commercially available natural user interface, brain-computer interface, and virtual reality technologies. Our mission is to harness the promise of these emerging technologies and discover innovative applications that will educate and help people to be safe, well and productive. Learn More »
Intel RealSense Controlling Phenoptix MeArm Robot Arm
This quick video compilation shows the unboxing and construction of a Phenoptix MeArm robot arm. The arm, built from a very inexpensive kit purchased from Adafruit Industries, is controlled using the Intel RealSense 3D camera hand tracking and gesture recognition APIs provided in the current SDK. Check out the video here.

"HandEye" Experimental App uses Leap Motion and Tobii EyeX Controller
HandEye is an experimental app for testing and improving eye-hand coordination. It utilizes advanced yet low-cost sensor technologies for remotely tracking eye movement and hand gestures. The game is simple - grids are randomly highlighted in red. When the user's eye gaze and hand position both occupy the grid simultaneously, a point (star) is earned. The app uses hand gesture data from a Leap Motion controller and eye tracking data from a Tobii EyeX controller. Applications for this non-contact technological approach exist in eye-hand coordination rehabilitation, testing, and training. Check out the video here.
Alien Mind Meld: Tobii EyeX + NeuroSky MindWave Mobile on Ultrabook
This simple proof-of-concept app demonstrated the utilization of data from both a Tobii EyeX eye tracking controller and a NeuroSky MindWave mobile EEG headband. The app was developed in C#/WPF and is shown running on an Win8 Intel Ultrabook (Software Development Platform). Check out the video here.

Eye Tracking Pan/Tilt Wireless IP Camera
This experiment demonstrates eye tracking control of a low cost IP camera. A Tobii EyeX controller mounted beneath the screen tracks subtle eye movements. Custom software was developed to stream the video image from a Foscam pan/tilt wireless IP Camera. The software translates EyeX behaviors to commands for controlling the camera's pan and tilt motors. We see potential applications for this in perceptual robotics, telepresence, and assistive technologies. Check out the video here.
