A system for interfacing between a user and a computer includes a microvideo display monitor, which may be mounted in a position which is substantially fixed relative to a given eye of the user, and a video input device which obtains an image of the given eye. The video input device is maintained in a fixed spatial relationship with the microvideo display monitor. From the image of the users eye obtained by the video input device, the location on the display on which this eye is focused may be determined. A computer which controls the generation of selected displays on the microvideo display monitor responds to the eye focus location to perform predetermined functions. A voice or speech recognition unit may also be used to provide inputs to the computer. The computer may then perform predetermined functions in response to any combination of speech, and eye location data. The system may also be used for identification of the user and to determine whether the user is impaired.
