The Camera Mouse was developed at Boston College from technology that came from their Eagle Eyes system. The Camera Mouse allows severly disabled individuals to operate a computer using movements of any body part. The system is composed of specialized tracking software and a camera and video capture card that is able to capture full motion video (30 frames per second). The camera is focused on the feature that is to be tracked and then the software is enabled. The software uses computer vision techniques to interpret the video input and move the mouse pointer the appropriate distance on the screen.
