  • Eye-tracking app Eyeware Beam free to download in iPhone beta

    Er, iOS (like macOS I mentioned) does head tracking by default too! @normm ;

  • Eye-tracking app Eyeware Beam free to download in iPhone beta

    This is one of the most exciting things I’ve read about in a while—not because of this particular implementation in gaming or whatever, but because of other potential applications of the TrueDepth technology.

    I mean, my sister-in-law has ALS—she communicates using an expensive yet limited proprietary device (tobii dynavox) that tracks her eye movements—she is five years in, so hers is not the latest model, but still even a brand-new unit can’t handle super-basic things we take for granted, like group texts or sending photos in texts. 

    The prospect of using an iPhone or iPad for something like this, in conjunction with iPadOS or macOS or even Windows is full of possibilities.
    Like head pointer I mentioned above, Apple provides loads of accessibility options as standard that many people don’t know exist. You probably know, but I just mention in case it’s helpful: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/mac-help/mchlp1400/11.0/mac/11.0

  • New iPhone-powered color balance feature compatible with older Apple TV models

    Gotta follow-up and comment about how this forum is not a kind, safe, supportive place. Call me naive, but there are some small parts of the internet where discussions are calm and friendly... 

    Be nice to aim to be more like that here (meant nicely).

    I wonder if it will work with my projector. Obviously the phone would have to face the projector and not the screen. 
    Obviously it won't work with your projector because your projector isn't designed to do this and doesn't have any capability to do it.
    I’m not sure it’s so obvious. The beauty of the solution is that a TV doesn’t need to be designed to do this or have any particular capability. If the system was setup as a back projector (which is probably isn’t) then it could well work as described.
    How would that possibly work? This back projector would have been designed to communicate wirelessly with an iPhone held up to the image the projector produces and adjust its color based on the communication with the iPhone, after having gone through the exact sequence of operations an Apple TV would in this mode? That would have been a remarkable instance of foresight and insight by the projector manufacturer.

    I think it's pretty obvious when you actually, you know, think about it.
    I think you’re missing the point. The iPhone sees the light and tells the AppleTV how to compensate for the peculiarities of whatever screen it is held up to. No other ‘communication’ with the screen needed. 

    Pretty clever when you think about it. 😉
    It might work with a projector driven by an Apple TV if it's rear projection (I doubt it would work with a front projection), but that wasn't how I understood the original question — i.e., there was no mention of Apple TV in the question, just the projector. (I mean, people are asking why the new Touch ID keyboards won't work with devices not designed for wireless Touch ID, so, no, I don't assume they mean a projector driven by an Apple TV.)
    We are in a thread about AppleTV
