Websites for early eyegaze work.


Lots of websites are eyegaze compatible, most of these are free or quite inexpensive:

HelpKidzLearn


From Inclusive Technology. At £120 for a yearly site license every school should have this anyway- if not then get it straight away! Also good for parental access at home as a home licence is even cheaper at £10 a year. There are plenty of eyegaze compatible games and activities- there is a pdf guide to them all here.
The activities will take you through the whole range of eyegaze skills as well. A great central resource for classes and pupils. You will need a good internet connection on your eyegaze units to get it to work of course.

Early Mouse Movements is a good one (below) - you move the mouse around to make paint tracks, then hitting one of the side circles will change the colour, music or sound effects. Good for early exploration and choice making.

Hidden Grid is another good one for moving the mouse and having cause and effect graphics show on screen. For dwelling and clicking there are plenty of programs that are suitable, for example Pop the Bubbles below.

Fungooms


Fungooms is an awesome site with loads of activities- most of which are mouse/ click input and therefore perfect for eyegaze users.

There is a great flappy bird type game here where a mouse click flaps the bird up. There's a great balloon pumping up activity here. There's an Airship activity where you collect owls with mouse movement, you get the idea. It's a great great site with a ton of activities- AWESOME!

Flappy Birds!

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/155402113/FlappyEyeGaze/index.html

The great Matt Daly from the Seashell Trust (@assistiveMatt) has programmed this Flappy Birds for eyegaze users- follow the link and play. It is hard as the bird follows your gaze, but Flappy Birds is hard on tablet too! Great game for eyegaze users to challenge their peers with.

Mouse Follower- free website.

http://www.shinylearning.co.uk/freegames/ShinyMouseFollower.html

For sensory cursor exploration this is really good and you can set it to 4 different icons with trail, no trail and 3 different musical effects as well. Move the mouse around and the icon moves too! Simples! Menu screen shot below.

Two of the effects shown here- ball and snowflakes. They are set with a trail to leave an effect and music too.

Touch Chimes- free program.

Moving the mouse around activates the sounds in each of the shapes, works well with eye gaze for a good musical cause and effect activity. Download here (thanks to Simon Evans from www.cognable.com).


And have a mouse play with it here too as an example!


Jackson Pollock Painting- free website.


A great one to start with, moving the mouse creates paint splashes, a dwell will change the colour. Really good fail free cause and effect program and free online. Website here.

Splatter- free website.


From Stamen Design- this can either be played online or downloaded as a free program- it works like Jackson Pollock above with one difference- the mouse/dwell click will blank the screen rather than change the colour- so a bit simpler and easier to use as a start to sensory eyegaze control. Link here. for the web version link here for the download.

Flow Micro- free website.


http://aaron-sherwood.com/works/flow/index.html

This is a free online web activity from Aaron Sherwood-a mouse click will create colour effects that have music with them too. Nice little activity- especially if you fullscreen your web browser (F11 on PC's)

Pattern- free website.


http://aaron-sherwood.com/works/pattern/index.html

Another online activity from Aaron Sherwood- move the mouse around to create swirls- click to change colour. Link above.

Bouncy Balls- free website.


From Neave Interactive. A dwell on the screen will pop the balls up, although the dwell has to be on a blank space (also works with microphone input which is cool too). Click here.

Flower Garden- free website.


Another really good dwell activity from the Procreo website- a black screen- dwell anywhere on the screen and up pops a flower!! How nice is that. Uses the mouse pointer so you know where you are looking and randomises the flowers that grow too. Link here.

Imagination- free website.


Also from Neave Interactive. Move the mouse around the screen to make really nice light patterns like the one below. Click here.

SENICT Playzone- free website.


Of course- Ian Beans site is a goldmine for switch resources- the home screen below would be a good start for some easy choice making for using the dwell function, or even to highlight an icon.
Screen Shot 2013-03-14 at 20.22.36.png

Each of these would work with the 'dwell' function of the eye gaze, like the open door one shown below. A dwell on the door will open it up to reveal a character.
Click here for the open door.

Tumbling Teds- free website.


Put the mouse over the teddies and they fall over! Then they climb back up again so you can knock them over again. More fun than a box of frogs. Click here.

Visual Acoustics- free website.


This site plays different notes from different instruments as you move the mouse around. Quite nice for pupils who like music, has graphical effects as well, though they are subtle. Click here.

Silk- free website.


Move the mouse and silky lines appear, you can mirror it with two and four way symmetry too. Quite relaxing with background music too. If you want very obvious cause and effect graphics though this may be a bit subtle for your needs, Click here

Catch the Bugs- free website.


Move mouse left to right to catch the bugs in a jar. For more advanced users but a good skill builder. Link here.

Screen Shot 2013-07-24 at 21.11.18.png


Fifi and the Flower Tots- free website.


Possibly for your more advanced eye-gazer- dwell on the screen and Fifi will jump up- move the mouse to change her direction to hit other flowers as she flies higher and higher. If you don't she'll just glide to the ground ready to start again. Shame it's not full screen but works well. Link here.
