This is a message for Andy, but I'll post it as an open comment for discussion. I am working to complete development of my Glass-based EyeSpeech system at the end of September to enable eye-gaze texting capability. I would like to put in place a pilot/test program at two or more medical centers by mid-October, and thought it would be a good idea to reach out to you now. Would you be supportive of using Glass with the EyeSpeech interface and an eye-tracking cam mounted 4 cm from the eye among  patients at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Centerwho may benefit from this capability? We would provide one or more Glass devices with the EyeSpeech/cam system enabled. All we ask is your availability to document the use of the system and report back to us your observations and experience so that we may improve the technology. My goal is to use this pilot program as a means to broker a deal between Google and Arrington Research (which manufactures the eye-tracking cam) to make this system available to any patient that can benefit. Please let me know if you are amenable to such a program and you think it would be possible to implement it and cut through the red tape at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center. Have a great July 4th weekend!

  1. Greg Maltz let's touch base early next week. This sounds like a great idea. Just need to work out some details.

  2. Thanks Andy. Let me know if I can help in working out the details. Ideal candidates for this program will have severe disability with regard to hands and/or voice but good cognitive ability and full use of their eyes.
