Once upon a time, there was an IT guy Andrej (founder) who had difficulties with his eyes due to his IT university studies. The diagnose stated: dry eye syndrome. One of the major cause of this disease is low blink rate. A lot of people blink considerably less in front of the computer screen. Blink rate is related to cognitive processes; when we are focused we blink less. Other reasons are the extensive light of the screen compared to the room light or air conditioning, contact lenses, Lasik etc.
As an IT guy specialized in computer vision, he had an idea to detect user’s blinks in order to monitor them and increase blink rate. And that is how the first idea about Eyeblink came to life in 2010. Since that time a lot of friends (Talbot, Marta, Marek, Tomas, Martin, Andrej, Peter,...) have helped him to create his app, website, promotional video, etc. During his PhD. studies at Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, a lot of his students (bachelor thesis, team project, professional practice) helped him. After 3 years with no success in object class detection, he changed his PhD. thesis to his hobby, the blink detection. He published two A-class journal papers about blink detection and successfully defended his thesis in May 2018. Now he works on Eyeblink fulltime and Jakub has joined him.
