Dynavox now owns Eye Response Technologies makers of the ERICA system. This is a big announcement, as the ERICA system was the eye gaze system until Tobii/ATI and DynaVox began producing them. The ERICA system has a patented technology for eye gaze that allowed for easy access to computer functionality. The ERICA did not have the content for communication that other systems have. Therefore, this will combine computer access and communication capabilities. I am very curious as to how this will turn out. DynaVox's current eyegaze technology (the EyeMax) was developed by EyeTech.

Also, this week, Dynavox filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a proposed initial public offering of its Class A common stock.
