Dr. DiMattia: what’s next?
“Now that we’re past many of the technological hurdles, we’re moving into the second phase of the EagleEyes project: educational application. This phase involves several objectives, many of which are centered on raising the consciousness of a world population who could benefit from this technology.”
Testing the limits
Unlike most 17 year olds, Matt Galligan makes his football picks by moving his eyes. Flanked by Boston College football player Haven Perkins and BC student, Kyle Novellano, Matt concentrates on moving the cursor across a large projected computer screen toward his chosen team. Some of the people around him protest, unhappy with the teams he has picked. Matt just laughs; a major sports fan, his team loyalties are firm and he won’t be swayed by the peer pressure around him.
Chance meeting sparked EagleEyes’ international
For most kids, a trip to Disney World in Florida is a vacation of fun and amusement park adventure. For Sian Boyd O’Toole, a student at the Holly Bank Trust School in West Yorkshire, England, a trip to Disney World meant a chance meeting that would permanently change her life and the lives of others around her.
