Cursor Control SystemBy Closing the Gap, Vol. 20, No. 5, p. 29
Publication Date: December/January 2002
Article describing the trackIRAT cursor control system from Technology for Education, Inc., which gives the user control of the cursor by tracking a removable, reflective dot placed anywhere on the forehead, eyeglasses, or finger. This feature gives the user hands-free control of the computer, as he or she can use the trackIRAT to drag as well as double click. Double clicking is performed by holding the cursor in the same place for an amount of time set by the user. The trackIRAT software has preset slow, medium, and fast cursor speed settings for easy setup. A smoothing feature lets users filter out unintentional head movements, and adjust the feel of the cursor’s motion. Users can create their own profile, which will adjust to the user’s specific speed preferences automatically when the profile is loaded.
