Faster mouse pointing by combining eye and head tracking
I noticed that with the current mouse pointer it's common to be off by about an inch even when the device is calibrated. There is a second mode offering a precision mouse pointer where I can move the mouse more precisely by looking at direction arrows. However, this is a fairly slow process requiring multiple steps.
Instead, I would like to propose an improvement that allows for faster and more precise clicking. It works by combining both eye tracking and head tracking. The eye tracker is used for fast warps across the screen and get to you within an inch or two of the target. Then the head tracker takes over and slight rotations of your head can position the mouse pointer more accurately within that smaller range.
I am the author of the open source Precision Gaze Mouse https://precisiongazemouse.com/. You can see it in action in this tool. The Talon Voice mouse also offers this feature http://talonvoice.com/. These both work with the Tobii 4C and either the built in support camera or external webcam.
I would love to have this method integrated into the Windows Eye Control so I can use shape writing. It will make mousing and typing much more efficient. Please reach out to me if I can be of assistance.
