NTT Docmo have developed a new pair of earphones that can be controlled by moving your eyes. The earphones use electrodes to determine the charge between you cornea and retina, and they can detect when you move your eyes in a particular direction.
Apparently the earphones are capable of pausing, playing and changing tracks, as well as adjusting the volume on your MP3 player up and down, and it also looks like the earphones work even when your eyes are closed.
Check out the video of the Eye Controlled Earphones in action below.
Sounds like a cool idea, although you definitely would look a little strange moving your eyes about all the time when you wanted to change tracks or turn up the volume on your MP3 player.
