Serial keys? Thats what you call a bodge!

Here's another (wacky) solution - hire a developer to write the interface code for mouse control using a mirametrix and it's open eye API framework - looks like a lot of the leg work has been started (http://mirametrix.com/eye-tracking-eye-tracker-api/ and note projects for mouse control already exist in some form eg http://www.gazegroup.org/downloads) (contact AssistiveWare - I know they would be keen to help find a solution to this since they are one of the main mac AT solution providers )

You could run a virtual machine on a mac to replicate windows - something like parallels works really well particularly in coherence mode where windows apps work pretty seamlessly & not in a window but eyegaze will stop working the moment you leave that windows app I would have thought. Alternatively you can run windows entirely if you really wish. There may be some problems - but cant see where - most aren't requiring hardware that the mac/virtualisation doesn't offer (except for units requiring FireWire - some macs have dropped this).

If you had some time and money I think there is a decent piece of work to look at the open source trackers and port the code over to the mac. I have been wanting to try and at the least setup a system like this: http://www.gazegroup.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=532&sid=3ff4caaef5c12c682b51e1925666dbc8 for sometime. Note it should be possible : http://www.gazegroup.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=628&p=1648#p1648

>        Just a bit of feedback: I loaned a head mouse for a client the other day who was using a mac.  The headmouse worked a treat (as it should, as it is just a USB mouse, but you never quite know do you). I panicked a bit when doing this as I thought - "what dwell click shall I use". But, a quick google and download found a good solution:
