That is very cool! My favorite part is the sight reading at 2:20. Those little jumps between each staff are very consistent, almost mechanical.

I've worked with eye tracking glasses like that. A very useful tool.
There are small infrared cameras looking at your eyes. The rims have IR LEDs pointing inwards and I think the software determines the eye look vector depending on the movement of the bright spots (since from the perspective of the camera, the shape of the eye depends on where you point it at). The glasses also have a built in camera facing outwards of course.
