It is difficult for people with severe disabilities who cannot control their hands to operate the mouse and keyboard. We have engaged in a three-dimensional virtual space user interface based on convergence and divergence using a virtual reality device with a gaze tracking function. In this paper, we propose to add a flick function to the user interface. The flick function is a combination of blinking eye and quick vision shift. By using this flick operation, we have achieved text input to the computer as well as window arrangement. This new feature let the handicapped people operate computers only with eyes as much as healthy people can operate with hands. In order to show the feasibility of our user interface, we have conducted numerical experiments, and obtained favorable results.
