Digital interfaces manipulation aid using Eye-Tracking and AI

Since my mother started using touchscreen devices, I’ve had the opportunity to observe how the relationship between elders and technology could be tricky in ways I couldn’t imagine before.

Speak first, Code later (don’t shoot the messenger)
