UK-based charity SpecialEffect has today released their unique open-source software called EyeMine, which allows gamers and non-gamers alike with severe physical difficulties to play the PC version of Minecraft with just their eyes!
The software works with a number of eye-trackers, and can be made compatible with any eye-tracker that can control a mouse pointer, and is free to download for anyone with a Minecraft account on Windows. By using just their eyes, players are able to walk, run, fly, fight and build creations from their wildest imaginations. Unlocking a number of possibilities for people that may otherwise not be able to enjoy gaming.
“For us, EyeMine represents a watershed development. It’s a flagship example of taking the experience we’ve gained through our one-to-one work with gamers with the most severe physical disabilities and translating it into a means of helping a huge number of people on a global scale.” – SpecialEffect Founder and CEO Dr Mick Donegan
