About the EyeHarp

Home / About the EyeHarp

The EyeHarp is a gaze-controlled or head-controlled music interface. It aims to allow people with physical disabilities learn and play music. It is open source and free to download and use. It forms part of the master and PhD thesis of Zacharias Vamvakousis, researcher in the Music and Machine Learning Lab, Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona, Spain. It is implemented on top of the openFremeWorks  open source C++ toolkit. It is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. We believe that accessibility technology should be accessible to everyone. Its cost shouldn’t be an obstacle for the ones that need it.
