Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9012)


In the paper we present a method for usability evaluation of kinetic gesture based user interfaces with application of eye tracking. First we present the problems of the kinetic interaction and the application of eye tracking in usability studies. Then we present our method of the usability verification with applied eye tracking, by performing a sample experiment, then its results and discussion.
