I just did an improved job of integrating the new conflict backgrounds (alternative assets) for alternating strabismus. To access them, go into binocular suppression, hold “up” (w) for about four seconds to get into the micro-controller menu, scroll (w) until you hit “asset swap” and select (e). Then press “up” (w) until you get this…
Some quick notes. Aniseikonia is basically when one eye sees the world at a different scale to the other. You can start the scene in EyeSkills, but you need a bluetooth keyboard attached. The keys “awdx” are mapped to “left, up,right,down” respectively. Press and hold either left or right for 3 seconds, then release. This…
Universe of Discource – VR Headset
To avoid confusion, we’re trying to settle on a useful set of terms to describe what we’re talking about when it comes to designing our VR headset. Here’s the current diagram – it will evolve I’m sure:
Modifying the Binocular Suppression scene for alternating strabismus
A quick look at how to add new conflict backgrounds, and how and where data elements like the suppression ratio are stored. This is particularly relevant for people exploring alternating strabismus.

Strange that I never posted this!
Here’s a video of the Demo Day from the last Prototype Fund last year. I don’t know how it slipped through the net, but here it is so I don’t forget it exists 🙂
Yet another unique Alternating Strabism phenomenon
This is a super brief note about a very short time spent trying out the app with Mrs. Nat [names have been changed to protect the innocent]. There were a few interesting things to note:
Issues with git submodules
So, the EyeSkillsCommunity app has the EyeSkillsFramework as a submodule in Assets/EyeSkills/Framework. When you first check out the submodule it is in a “detached state” which means that changes can’t be resubmitted. The Hackaround I found is to make changes, commit them (remember the commit id) then : git checkout master git pull email@example.com:community/EyeSkillsFramework.git [5……4092ef…]…
“Eye Skills, You Skills, We all got Skills for …” Basic questions remain unanswered about what Lazy Eye really is, and how able different people are to overcome or moderate its effects. It is our mission to empower the Lazy Eye community to collectively contribute to answering these questions. For the last…
Designing for a better understanding of alternating strabismus conflict zones
Now that we’re increasingly certain that alternating strabismus is something in its own right, with different perceptual side-effects to “regular” fixed strabismus, we’re starting to think about how we could better understand/categorise/explore what those perceptions are in a way that can be reliable reported…. Here are some initial ideas one the very simplest first steps…
Trying out EyeSkills with Fabian – notes
Fabian 29.12.2018 – Alternating. Generally, right eye strabismic. Can alternate at will. Don’t have suppression in the normal way – panorama vision with a suppressed central section.
