 I am happy to announce openEyes -- an open-source open-hardware toolkit 
for low-cost eye tracking. The purpose of openEyes is to provide hardware 
designs and software tools useful for the analysis of eye movement data. 
The development of openEyes stems from the recognition that while the 
cost of hardware for eye tracking has precipitously dropped in the recent 
past that the there is lack of freely available software to implement 
even long-established eye-tracking methods. The tools available 
in openEyes include algorithms to measure eye movements from digital 
videos, techniques to calibrate eye tracking systems, and software to 
facilitate real-time eye-tracking application development.

 We are just now setting up a community web site but have a number of 
projects that have been active for a while. We have source code and 
hardware designs available online. Please feel free to visit and comment 
on the site. We are also soliciting contributions to the toolkit from the
