Playing The Piano With Your Eyes. Hmm...

The Japanese University at Tsukuba and tech company FOVE have joined forces to create a special set of goggles, similar to Oculus, that allows the wearer to play the piano simply by looking at pictures of various notes. The project is aptly named Eye Play The Piano and in a nutshell, it's tech that tracks eye movement towards each note or set of notes and plays the respective piano keys in real-time. Naturally, they tried it out at a school for disabled kids, giving one kid in particular autonomy over his body for the first time in his life. Amazing.
