Eye Tracking comes to the laptop

 Eye tracking has been around for more than 100 years and the technique and technology have come a long way since then.

Soon enough, it will evolve once more.

The idea had been around for a while but it appears that the 'Eye Tracking Laptop' has finally arrived. 

 

Tobii partnered up with Lenovo and created a laptop with integrated eye tracking control capabilities. They believe that the functionality will work hand-in-hand with the traditional keyboard and mouse...without necessarily killing them. 

 

The eye tracking laptop will be able to track and analyze a person's eye movements and elaborate suggestions based on where the user looks. They exemplify with the possibility that if a person looks to the bottom of the screen, the task bar could appear. Or, if the eye tracker notices that a person is stumbling around a certain word, a definition of that same word could appear. They also sepak of the possibility of interacting with characters in games using eye movements. These are two of the many possible capabilities.

 

Pricing? Yet to be disclosed. 
Current Tobii Eye Trackers are valued at around €20.000, give or take a couple thousand. Barbara Barclay of Tobii states that the laptop eye tracker could be much cheaper.

 

In short, this little piece of technology sounds great. One can only wait to launch an FPS and start killing some aliens with their eyes!
