Swedish company Tobii is about to release its MyTobii P10, a PC that can be controlled by tracking your eye movements using its own proprietary hardware and software.
Follow a calibrating dot on the screen with your eyes for 30 seconds, and then you’ll be able to control this PC without touching it at all. What’s even more remarkable tis that the company has figured out how to make this work in almost any lighting conditions, and even if you wear glasses.
The ability to mount the pc to a desk, bed or wheelchair should prove very helpful for people with disabilities.
The first version of this PC will cost around $17,000.
With that kind of money you could actually hire someone to follow your eye movements and then do whatever you want for you instead. But well it’s a cool technology and hopefully with time the price tag will shrink to something more reasonable and affordable.
