LC Technologies Teams Up With NuShield to Take Eye-Tracking Technology on Tablets to the Next Level

Without NuShield film, this Asus tablet’s reflection is so strong it practically acts as a mirror.

Even though the incredibly advanced technological work they do on a daily basis has literally been changing the lives of disabled people for nearly three decades now, the Fairfax, Va.-based LC Technologies, Inc. is not the sort of tech firm most digital natives are intimately familiar with.

The company doesn’t build addictive mobile apps or social media platforms, and neither their president nor their software engineer is regularly praised in the pages of the popular business press.

But thanks to a recent collaboration between the company and NuShield, LC Technologies may soon find itself receiving the sort of positive accolades its important work has long warranted.

With NuShield’s film installed, the tablet’s glare is completely removed, allowing the eye-tracking software to work as it was intended.

So, what exactly does LC Technologies do? The science behind their work, perhaps not surprisingly, is rather complicated. But explaining the work they produce and the effect is has on the patients who use it is fairly simple.

To put it plainly, LC Technologies develops eye-tracking software, which is exactly what it sounds like: computer software that tracks the eye movements of its users. It makes the process of communication and computer usage—crucial activities that the vast majority of us take for granted—a reality for disabled patients who can’t communicate through speech, or even through hand motions.

For the most part, the patients who take advantage of LC Technologies’ software, which is known as Eyegaze Edge, suffer from brain injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, and brainstem and spinal cord injuries. Some even suffer from spinal muscular atrophy and ALS, which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The Only Tablet Screen Protector a DJ Will Ever Need

Today, apps can turn your tablet into a powerful DJ tool, but parties will also be messy. Protect your device with a Triple A or DayVue screen protector.

“Let’s get this party started!”

Whether it’s an occasional party or a full-time job, as DJ you’re in charge of keeping the music flowing and the crowd happy. As the crowd dances and sways, you’re busy swiping and tapping at your tablet screen, controlling the action wirelessly.

All those actions add up to a high risk of damage to your tablet screen, leading to a potential loss of income and missed jobs if you can’t get your tablet repaired in time.

And although mobile computer applications are more than capable of transforming your tablet into a powerful DJ tool, the fact remains that high-octane parties—with their ever-present combination of sweat, water, alcohol, and who knows what else—will also be somewhat messy affairs. Protecting your screen will protect your income. It’ll also keep the good times rolling all night long.

If you’re someone who occasionally uses their tablet computer or mobile phone to rock the party—or even if you use apps to play instruments like the piano or the guitar on your tablet—here’s what you need to know:
