Controlling the mouse and the computer simply by looking where you want to go is already here to some extent thanks to a company called Tobii. Last year the company was showing off its eye-tracking tech and even had the technology inside a Lenovo notebook. This year at CeBIT 2012 the company was showing off its latest eye tracking technology.
The new eye-tracking tech is called the Tobii IS-2 Eye Tracker module. The company says that this particular model is more flexible and responsive than the version shown last year and can be integrated into more platforms. I think this technology would make a great gaming controller for PC gamers.
The technology has an onboard processor that massages the information gathered from two infrared projectors that illuminate the user’s eyes and a pair of small cameras that record the eye position as the user looks around. The controls of the game or the computer then follow with a person looks. I want this technology instead of a mouse on my computer.
