Seeking participants for eye tracking security study

You are invited to participate in research on a new secure login technique based on eye tracking!

The study will take about an hour and you'll get to use an eye tracking machine.
In appreciation for your help, we will enter you into a drawing for one of two $25 gift cards.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Michael Brooks at (440) 865-2437, or by email at

The purpose of this research is to test the new biometric security system.
This system uses eye tracking technology to uniquely identify individuals, similar to a fingerprint or signature.

If you decide to participate, we will schedule an appointment with you in Sieg Hall at the University of Washington.
The appointment will last about 1 hour. You will use the eye tracking machine to test the performance of the security system.
You will also complete a questionnaire and short interview about the experience.

If you are over 18 and sighted, you may be eligible to participate.
Unfortunately if you have been involved in one of our prior studies, you cannot participate in this study.

This study is being conducted in the Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle campus.
Your participation in this research is voluntary, and you are free to refuse to participate or quit the experiment at any time without loss of benefits.
