Tobii EyeAsteroids Game Is Controlled By Your Eyes, Rather Than A JoyStick (video)

If you find using a joystick a little restrictive and not particularly to your liking perhaps this new EyeAsteroids arcade game created by Tobii Technology might be more up your street. Rather than using a traditional joystick to control your ship the game uses your eyes.

As expected Tobii explains a player’s response and reaction times are vastly improved when they are compared to joystick controls. Watch the video after the jump to see EyeAsteroids in action.
