The article offers information on the development of AccuPoint eye-and head-tracking equipment from Invotek to make computer use possible for people with disabilities and limited motions. It details how the system works and mentions the inclusions of its package such as the AccuKeys and AccuPoint TW. It notes that aside from personal computer use, the features of the Accupoint allow a variety of applications. The funding and continuous effort for the evolution of tracking technology is explored.
