Eye-Controlled Laptop Reaches the Prototype Phase

Tuesday Mar 1st 2011 by Datamation.com Staff

Lenovo says the technology could appear in consumer products within a couple of years.

TMCnet: Lenovo has unveiled 20 new laptop prototypes that track a user's eye movements in order to control the cursor and make other changes to the computer screen. The eye tracking technology, developed by Sweden's Tobii Technology, shines two infrared lights at the user's retinas. It can be used to open windows, browse through documents and emails, select icons, and zoom in on graphics on the screen.

"To reach a state where the technology is part of the average computer, we need to make it smaller and cheaper," noted Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii Technology. "We believe that this can be realized in a couple of years by partnering with the right manufacturer."
