In this work we investigate the effects of switching from mouse cursor control to gaze-based control in a computerized divided attention task. We conducted experiments with 9 participants performing a task that requires continuous focused attention and frequent shifts of attention between the parallel tasks. Although the mouse control version was well-practiced, we hypothesized that gaze-based control would impair performance considerably because of the increased cognitive load. Our assumptions were confirmed by statistical analysis methods. The results of this study provide evidence that care should be taken in the design of interfaces controlled by human eye-gaze, which require divided attention.
