Rutgers University Multimodal Input Manager hardware:
* A desk-mounted gaze tracker with camera from ISCAN Inc. looks at the
pupil and the direction of light reflecting from the eye to determine where
the user is looking on the screen.
* A speech recognizer made by Microsoft Corp. called MS Whisper and
a speech synthesizer are used to receive voice commands.
* Rutgers Master II force-feedback glove applies pressure by varying
the amount of compressed air delivered through pistons in the user's glove.
