Although webcams are very popular nowadays, their appearance is mostly the same. Now a human eye web camera that is almost identical to human eyes has been introduced abroad, which greatly improves the human-computer interaction.
According to foreign media reports,The Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory of the University of Saarland in Germany has launched a human-eye web camera called “Eyecam”. Not only does it look the same as a real human eye, it can also blink and turn the eyeball, and even sense gestures.
It is reported that the camera was developed by Marc Teyssier (Marc Teyssier) of the University of Saarland to improve the interaction between humans and the camera and the communication between people during the epidemic.
Tessier said that “Eyecam” looks very close to real human eyes. Of course, this is not to scare people, but to convey emotional exchanges between people through this special interaction in one-to-one conversations.
“Eyecam” can not only imitate the user’s eye movements,People can also interact with it by touching, tapping or even kneading.For example, when you want to turn off the camera, just cover the eyes of “Eyecam” with your hand, and it can close your eyes.
It is understood that the “Eyecam” artificial eyeball has a webcam sensor and lens, and the surrounding area is covered by a fake silicone skull. The eyeball and eyebrows can be controlled by 6 electric servo motors.
Through the Raspberry Pi Zero, it can be connected to a PC via a USB port and used as a webcam. In addition, its code source is completely open, and users can download and make the code they need.
