Hi! Today we’re going to be comparing the usability of various household devices (Microwave, TV remote, keyboard, etc.) against those of research devices (like eye trackers and brain-computer interfaces).

Information Transfer Rate and Bits/Min

To do this, we’ll be investigating each device’s information transfer rate (ITR), or how fast the user can communicate with the…
