Midas Touch Problem in Eye Tracking

This is an interesting metaphor in the eye tracking literature.

King Midas is able to turn everything he touches into gold. It does not actually work out, since he cannot use his hands as normal hands, to do those daily simple tasks.

When eye gaze is used an interaction media interfacing with computer systems, the basic function of eye, to look and to perceive visual information, should be distinguished from those deliberate interaction with the computer systems. Otherwise, it becomes Midas Touch.


Research Talk at Tongji University

Thanks to Dr. Peng Qi, I was invited to deliver a research talk at Tongji University, Shanghai last week. Augmented Reality is a generally new area for researchers in China. The response from the students of Tongji was quite rewarding for me.
