Write With Your Eyes

The above are the cursive writings by subjects using only their eyes. Jean Lorenceau of Universite Pierre et Marie Curie-Paris, says, “Contrary to the current belief, we show that one can gain complete, voluntary control over smooth pursuit eye movements. The discovery also provides a tool to use smooth pursuit eye movements as a pencil to draw, write, or generate a signature.”

The technology uses the smooth eye movement technique to write. Lorenceau states that the smooth eye movement is not easy while you are normally looking at any object. He got the idea when we experienced the movement while he was watching an odd visual. He found that he could see his own eye movement and found that with a little training he could control his eye movement. This is made possible by changing the contrast of the video so that you can trick your eyes and assume that there is a motion at the point. This will help physically disabled people to write with their eye movements.
