EyeJacking: See What I See


While modern communication technologies mean that we can connect to more people, these connections lack the affective subtleties inherent in situated interactions. EyeJacking is an application for the sharing of experiences in which one or more persons �eyejack� a person�s visual field to share what he or she sees. Using a wearable camera/micorphone system, remote interaction partners can share an experience first-hand and play an active role in shaping the experience. We explore the application of EyeJacking as a tool for situated learning for individuals on the autism spectrum, where parents, caregivers, or peers could �eyejack� and tag the world remotely. We also explore the application of EyeJacking to leverage the power of the masses to bootstrap people-sense abilities in robots.
