No joke, that was seriously tedious and took me hours to get right (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSn6s3DPTSg). The real point of the video was to show that we made a cheap eye tracker ($25) add-on for Glass along with a better pupil detection algorithm than was previously available (https://github.com/wearscript/wearscript-eyetracking). We're working with accessibility labs to use it as an input device for users who can't use the touchpad on Glass. The goal is to make it widely available for people to hack on so that everyone benefits as opposed to $10k proprietary systems that have bad support for modern software/devices. Adding in Mario was just an easy point of reference, everyone knows the relative complexity of that as opposed to a synthetic test.

I didn't know soldering some electronics together and porting a language to a platform is Ph.D. level work.

Agreed. This is my research http://scholar.google.com/cita... . WearScript is a tool that helps us in our current research (which is an extension of this https://www.youtube.com/watch?... ). When you do research you can either use tools that already exist or you can take a detour and invest in making better tools so you can do more effective research, that's what this is.

Comment: WWDC'09 Pictures and Panorama (Score 1) 770

I took a bunch of pictures at WWDC and made a panorama of the Moscone center http://msca.me/1J . Click around it's pretty neat. I think brian lam from gizmodo might be in there on the right. The WWDC'09 has been great so far, but what is up with the matte case that was floating around previously, was that a hoax or what? I could have sworn it was for the $100 one (which ran out in all the stores I've checked).

Make sure your code does nothing gracefully.
