Portable Eye-controlled Computer and Communication Device

Tobii Assistive Technology Inc. said its portable eye-controlled computer and communication device are among items featured in a new exhibit at theComputer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif.

With offices in Dedham, Tobii ATI develops eye-tracking and speech-technology solutions for people with disabilities. Instead of a keyboard and mouse, a person with a disability can simply use their gaze to type out words to turn into speech, or connect with others through e-mail, Facebook, and the Internet, the company said of its products.

“Our curatorial staff hand-picked Tobii ATI’s eye-controlled computer for the exhibit as it represents a revolution that has and will continue to change our lives for decades to come,” said John Hollar, president and chief executive of the Computer History Museum, said in a statement.
