Eye gaze gaming in Finland

Love this photo and video clip from Dr Mick’s visit to Finland in June. He's introducing his friend Kati to our Eye Gaze Gaming website, and she's loving it!

“Kati’s had locked-in syndrome since having a severe stroke over 20 years ago,” said Mick. “She’s someone I’ve been lucky enough to have been friends with ever since meeting her during a European Project on gaze control. I took the opportunity to catch up with her and introduce her to the joys of gaze-controlled gaming.”

"Thank you for the for the wonderful day in Helsinki!” wrote Kati on FaceBook later. “It was so nice to see you after all these years! I was happy to be your guinea-pig and test your eye gaze video games!”

Our R&D team have working hard to push the Eye Gaze Games website project forward, and we're delighted to see it generating such excitement!

There's also a quick clip here of Kati trying out some of the eye gaze games. Note that there's no sound on this.
