I can see clearly now…

5 November 2015 / Tim Holmes

This week I’m just covering a single tip because it’s a really important one and it turned out I had more to say on the subject than even I was expecting! Next week I’ll catch up on the remaining tips from last week and be tweeting the final 5 in this current series. Tip 31:…


Staying on track 6: ToTD 26-30

28 October 2015 / Tim Holmes

This week I had the pleasure of having one of my tips quoted back to me whilst I was working on-site at a University. It was in-fact the University that kicked off my very first tip of the day, so it’s great to know that some benefit is coming from this! Unfortunately, they are also…


Staying on track 5: ToTD 21-25

19 October 2015 / Tim Holmes

It’s been a while now since the Real World Eye-tracking Workshop at Royal Holloway, and plans are well underway for the second one. This reminded me that I had quite a few tips left over from the first wave of Eye-tracking Tips of the Day, and so while we’re firming up dates for the next…


Goodnight Vienna

25 August 2015 / Tim Holmes

As we taxied towards the runway at Vienna airport this evening, facing directly into the most orange of sunsets, I was rather sorry that the conference was over.  This was certainly due, in no small part, to the location and organisation which was top notch, but also very much down to the attendees whose energy…


A bird? A plane? No, it’s Conference Man!

19 August 2015 / Tim Holmes

A recent edition of the ever excellent “This American Life” podcast stated that when you ask most people what superhero ability they’d like to have they tend to say things like “ability to fly” or “invisibility” or “I want to be indestructible”. All good choices indeed, but after 9 years of attending computing, design, vision,…


All eyes on Vienna!

18 August 2015 / Tim Holmes

After a quick game of spot the vision scientist at Heathrow Terminal 3 and with the European Conference on Eye Movements (ECEM) abstract book loaded onto my iPad for inflight reading (yes, I’m THAT nerdy), I headed out for the bi-annual gathering of 600+ researchers into all things oculomotor.  Conferences like this are taken pretty…


Statute of imitations!

10 August 2015 / Tim Holmes

I don’t normally discuss my private life on this blog, but it’s already August and I am preparing to head out to the European Conference on Eye-Movements (ECEM) in Vienna, Austria, which for me can mean only thing. No, not that it’s time to dig out the Sound of Music on Blu-ray, although now I…


Eye balls

28 July 2015 / Tim Holmes

I am, without a doubt, one of the biggest proponents of eye-tracking and believe it to be one of the best non-invasive methodologies for gaining meaningful insights into behaviour and the underlying cognitive processes. This, of course, is predicated on a well-designed study and, indeed, on applying much of the learning that I’ve been sharing…


Staying on track 4: eye-tracking tips of the day 17-20

24 June 2015 / Tim Holmes

If you’ve been following the ET tips of the day on Twitter (@DrTimHolmes) you’ll have noticed it’s gone a bit quiet this week!  This isn’t because I’m out of tips, it’s just that I’m giving you a breather before the second wave and I need to get on with finalising materials for the Real World…


Staying on track 3: tips of the day 12-16

12 June 2015 / Tim Holmes

Part 3 of my eye-tracking tips, and yes I still have enough of these to challenge J.K.Rowling for the number of instalments! Before I launch into this week’s tips, I thought I’d mention something that comes up quite a lot with our customers, and is a really good way to avoid making some of the…
