Cabin 6

This booth is meant primarily for the SMI eye tracker during the pilot phase of an experiment. So while piloting or preparing an eye tracking experiment with the SMI eye tracker, this is the place to be. Occasionally, this room can be reserved for other experiments with a laptop or pc. However, since it is the eye tracking lab, experiments with the SMI have priority.
