How to build low cost eye tracking glasses for head mounted system (M. Kowalik, 2010)

Michał Kowalik of the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology at the West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin, Poland, has put together a great DIY instruction for a headmounted system using the ITU Gaze Tracker. The camera of choice is the Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 which has been modified by removing the casing and IR filter. In addition, three IR LEDs illuminate the eye using power from the USB cabel. This is then mounted on a pair of safety glasses, just like Jason Babcock & Jeff Pelz previously have done. Total cost of the hardware less than 50€. Neat. Thanks Michal.
