The Processing Side of Things

I have decided to pair my PCOMP final with the final for Intro to Computation Media. The VCR project fulfills the requirements of both final projects. ICM’s main requirement is to use Processing.

The Code has been giving me some trouble as ITP is my first experience with a programming language of anykind. The trick with most eye tracking as I understand it is tracking both the pupil and the glint – the bright reflection caused by shining an infrared or other some-such light into the pupil. Jason Babcock is an ITP alumnus who wrote an eye tracking application for OS X for his final. His site has been helpful. For my purposes, fortunately, I only need three differentiable areas to correspond with the three controls of the VCR: “fast-forward,” “rewind,” and “play.” View the code here.
