Eye Controlled Computers and Devices

With Microsoft coming out with the Kinect recently and other companies coming out with similar motion based control cameras it was only a matter of time before the next generation of this technology began to come out.

Tobii (A worldwide leader in eye control products) partnered up with Lenovo to design a new computer, in this case a laptop, which can be controlled by the movement of your eyes.  Though the laptop does not entirely function on the movements of your eyes due to the fact that people have a tendency to move around and look around a lot while working on their PC’s, it does give some simple key commands that allow the eye control to be toggled on and off.

To demonstrate how effective their control sensors are Tobii had a game of asteroids setup on the laptop for users to play which demonstrated how accurate the eye on the computer was at picking up your eyes movements and how you actually wanted to interact with the sensor/computer.
