Even as multitouch screens become de rigueur for our phone and tablet experience, researchers are pushing hard on dependable, hands-free ways to make our toys work. Swedish company Tobii Technology teamed up recently with Lenovo to demonstrate Windows 7 laptops with eye-control sensors built in.
Tobii has a lot of experience in this field, as it demonstrated in this clip from CeBIT 2011. It certainly wowed the folks at Engadget, who can be a tough sell.
Anders Olsson of Tobii says in the video that, with the right vendor partnership, its eye-control tech could be available for mainstream computers in a couple of years. Watch for yourself and tell us what you think — can this ever be practical enough for day-to-day computing?
