How to Make a Low-Cost DIY Eye-Movement Detector!

Need to add eye-movement detector for your next project?   Check out what Luis Cruz (a senior in high school) did, a low-cost DIY eye-movement detector. This is amazing, not only that he was able to do it for low cost but this kid is simply GENIUS!
