A collaboration between Hayeon Hwang and Jenny Lim
Because the Tobii eyetracker was checked out, Hayley and Jenny (henceforth “we”) decided to make our own eyetracker. Eric Rosenthal gave us a VAlinks 6 LED USB 2.0 Webcam. We smashed the IR filter and mounted it on a baseball cap.
This yielded interesting results, which are worth further exploration. For the moment, we decided to stick with regular camera vision for the stability.
We came up with a series of increasingly personal questions to ask each other while wearing the camera. It is interesting to see how eye movement changes as the questions become more difficult.
