A virtual reality device for playing music on a piano using eye movement has been proto-typed in Japan. It is being developed by the University of Tsukuba’s Special Needs Education School for the Physically Challenged and Fove, a manufacturer of virtual reality equipment, who is fundraising to enable the device to be distributed to other special needs institutes in Japan.

The device is worn over the eyes and tracks eye movement in relation to an interface of digitised keys from a standard keyboard and also enables foot pedals to be simulated.

Further details of Eye Play The Piano can be found on the Fove website.
