EyeCraft

an implimentation of the EyeTribe Tracker in Minecraft

Background

EyeCraft was the culmination of 1.5 years of research under Dr. Lucas Parra at the Biomedical Engineering Lab at City College. Over the course of my junior and senior year of high school, I worked at the lab as an intern shadowing Dr. Parra and one of his graduate students who was studying Human-Computer Interaction. The graduate student I shadowed, John, was developing a head mounted eyetracker to control an AR Drone for his master’s thesis.

Research Project

At the end of my internship, I decided to conduct my own research exploring how gaming interfaces could be enhanced using eye tracking. To demonstrate my findings, I wrote a research paper on the topic and developed an implementation of some of the ideas I had using the EyeTribe Tracker and the popular sandbox game, Minecraft.
