Project Description

We pass all they long in front of digital screens, around 8/10 hours in the best cases. This creates a big eye fatigue and most probably our sight degeneration (I'm not obviously an expert on this, but I assume that tired sight is not good).

Some studies even say that eye-blinking may provide information about the mental performance: https://medium.com/sswitch/eye-blink-rate-as-an-indicator-of-fatigue-and-mental-load-a61613a4b49f

I want to play around this topic and try to create some basic tool to measure our eyes blinking rates using a webcam.

Goal for this Hackweek

  1. Learn about facial recognition tools using open source tools such as openCV
  2. Create a basic tool to measure our eye-blinking rates
  3. Additionally, create some basic game to test our sight quality (as you do when you visit your doctor XD)
