“We’ve been stuck for a quarter of a century with a keyboard and a mouse. It’s time to move to the next step and eye control technology is the perfect solution. It’s definitely going to be in the laptops of the future.”
Sweden’s Anders Olsson of Tobii technology told The Local, referring to the unveiling of Tobii Technology’s newest advancement: eye-controlled laptops!
Derived from the same technology that is used in cars to determine whether the driver is drowsy, eye-controlled laptops will help save battery life (able to recognize when you’re not looking at them, they’ll dim the screen), allow you to zoom when looking at images, and they will make transitioning between windows easier.
Though Tobii admits that the technology still needs to be refined, having just unveiled a prototype, they claim to
”look forward to working with our partners to find many exciting ways to share and integrate this technology to advance their work.”
I think I fantasize for many fellow gamers when I imagine a FPS controlled solely by your eyes! Praise those Swedish nerds!
