Either it is about slicing the fruits or about Tobii, the eye tracking technology is not new to our soundings but the recent advancement in this line is interesting in terms of its low cost effectiveness.
Researchers at Imperial College London have developed a device, GT3D, which aids the people having multiple sclerosis or muscular dystrophy to control their activity on computer by tracking their eye movement with cameras.
Made from off-the-shelves, the device costs around $60. During the early tests researchers made subjects play the classic Pong game and they also managed to write emails all by controlling the mouse cursor by the wink of their eyes.
The findings of this experiment are published in IOP Publishing’s Journal of Neural Engineering.
Down on this road I can see a future where people will experience a digital age where smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and signage will be controlled with your eyes, an interesting yet a dangerous sort of prediction isn’t it?
