Students with disabilities in Michigan's Northville Public Schools have a new adaptive system that allows them to control the cursor on a computer screen with eye or head movement. The EagleEye system -- one of just two in the state and about 100 in the world -- was developed at Boston College in the 1990s and aims to offer access to computers for children and adults who might not otherwise be able to use them. "It opens so many doors and gives them opportunities they never had before," teacher Lorie Farrow.
