The Pointing Magnifier enlarges the visual and motor space
The Angle Mose tracks the cursor's angle of movement to know when the cursor is nearing the target
The cursor's angle of movement is initially narrow (top), but diverges as the user nears the target
For many people with motor disabilities, the task of precisely moving a mouse cursor around a screen can be incredibly frustrating. While controlling a mouse cursor with the power of thought looks likely to be possible in the not too distant future, researchers at the University of Washington's (UW) AIM Research Group have created two mouse cursors designed to make homing in on onscreen targets much easier. Neither requires additional computer hardware and all the researchers are hoping for in return for the freely downloadable software is some user feedback.
