Try it on yourself

One of the best things I ever did was put the EagleEyes on myself and them played with the controls while I was hooked up to it. It helped me to better understand what adjustments needed to be made when, and how the adjustments actually work. I was able to see common errors and what was causing it.
For example, usually you need to use the centering buttons 3 times in succession to properly center the cursor because it actually moves away from your eyes the first time as it "brackets" to recenter. After doing this, I have been able to have better success at calibrating the system quickly.

Try it and let me know what you think.

Calibration by accident

One day, I was letting my user, Angel, calm down after a mild episode. I turned on a Tinker Bell video to let her watch. I still had the EagleEyes system on and I could see her eyes following tinker bell on the screen. I used this time to calibrate the system because in this instance I knew where she should be looking and was able to get the best calibration I ever have. We went on to do several activities with good precision.

From this I realized that it allowed the electrodes time to warm up, and allowed the user to adjust to having them on her face because she was distracted by the video, which gave me time to calibrate without her getting frustrated. Sometimes if I start an activity before the system is warmed up and calibrated it just frustrates little Angel and she gives up for the day.

Calibration

I think it would be great to have a calibration mode similar to maybe a joystick where the user looks at each corner of the screen so the software can calibrate the movement of the eye and size of the screen.
