Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

In my introductory 'Welcome' post, I briefly indicated that the greater portion of the content published on this blog would be related to games - video games, digital games, computer games; you choose your favorite - and eye tracking.

To be a bit more specific, and using a known portuguese verb; I'm going to 'raise the tip of the veil', which is to say, give you all a little sneak peek about what kind of things you can find here.

 

1st: Lots of stuff related to eye tracking

If I find and read an article, a report or an academic paper related to eye tracking, a study where eye tracking was used, or anything of that sort... I'll probably let you know about it. I'll give you some feedback, start what I hope stirs up discussion...

I might also publish some information related to eye tracking solutions; the 'pros & cons' of eye tracking as they come, among other relevant information.

 

2nd: Lots of stuff relaed to games

Games - or one of the cousins mentioned above - are all over the internet. So what can you find here? Whatever I find relevant to my cause or interesting in general. 'Social games', for example, are a worldwide hype at the moment - thanks Facebook - and I've been reading a bit about the issue. Just as I'll do with eye tracking information, I might publish a couple of links to articles that I find of greater interest.

Reviews! Although I'm not the hardcore gamer some might make me out to be, I do enjoy playing a video game every once and a while. So if I play anything recent, I'll let you know how I feel.

 

3rd: HCI and Usability

I've also been looking at usability and HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) for a while now. So expect information related to the area. After all, the core of my work is to understand how eye tracking can be used as a method of evaluating games, and how players use games.... yeah, that's a usability issue :)

 

4th: Other random stuff

Everything in life needs every once and a while a breath of fresh air. So don't be surprised if I publish something out of the ordinary. Maybe it'll be a funny video, or an informative video; maybe it'll be a comic, a review on a movie, on a book... on something else. Diversification is fun; so you'll find that here.

 

So that's basically the sum of it. Now you know what to expect :) I'll be posting up during the next few days a bunch of blogs or sites that I read and follow.

Also, and although this original layout is pretty awesome, I'll be looking to give it a personalized touch... but that might take a while :)
