Eye Tracking

For “Computers for the Rest of You” we have to come up with a project that reads “data” from our body (heart rate, brain waves, sweat, eye movement…) and investigate what it can tell us about ourselves.

I decided to keep on developing my eye tracking idea:

When people are tasked to pick their favorite photograph from several photos, it is not always the one they spent the most time looking at.

Several subjects will be asked to pick their favorite photo. They will then be presented with three equally sized photos in a Processing window. Eye tracking will record their eye motions while the pick their favorite photo and record it by clicking. The eye tracking data will be compared with the favorite picks to see if there is a correlation between time spent looking at a photo and the favorite picked.
