Helping people with communication limitations based on visualisation tools for astronauts
EyeSpeak is a direct spin-off from the work LusoSpace did for an ESA study on visualisation tools for astronauts. The glasses detect the movement of the eyes across a virtual keyboard displayed on the inside of its lenses. Words and phrases spelled out by the wearer are translated by the built-in software and spoken by speakers in one arm. The glasses can also let the user navigate the Internet, watch videos and access emails privately, as only the user sees what is being projected inside the lens. Since the digital information is overlaid on the lens, users can still see what is going on around them.
