Lab Creates Hands-Free Nintendo Controller
The Nintendo Wii revolutionized gaming by changing how players interact with the game. By modifying an old NES, Waterloo Labs has taken that revolution one step further. By combining eye tracking technology with the NES game controller port, Waterloo Lab workers created a version of Super Mario that users could play through using only their eyes.
The eye tracker measures changes in the magnetic field generated by a player's eyes. By mapping those changes to directions, the controller lets the player move Mario or Luigi around without using their hands .
Whether or not the player can enter the Konami code using this system remains to be seen.
