Mouse tracking

2013-04-17 22:04:03.534184+00 by Dan Lyke 12 comments

Click on a few dots and our program will guess your age!

Human motor system changes as we age. Our program will guess your age by analyzing how you click.

Pointer device systems only, doesn't work with touchscreens, presumably because they're tracking mouse motion. Also thinks I'm 30, which I appreciate...

Looks like Flutterby is a population of mousin' fools!

I bet we're all ahead of our peers on the computing/mousing curve having been using the bloody things for fun before everyone else Had To.

Plus being a bunch of geeks we know how to optimize our computer interactions - the "click the circles" which had the ring of empties circles filed in with a predictable order, so it was easy to start moving in the correct direction.

I did it three times, each time with a different input device (mouse, trackpad, trackball) and got 41, 41 and 31. I'm 44.

  1. Exactly 14 years off. Must suffer the same issue as the Lykes!
