[IP] World's First Eye-Controlled Laptop Presented.

Computer manufacturer Lenovo has partnered with Swedish startup Tobii Technology to launch the world's first eye controlled laptop which will be on display as from today at CeBIT in Hannover.

The prototype is a fully functional model and according to the manufacturer provides with a more intuitive interface as it relies on the human eyes to point, select and scroll and complements, rather than replace, existing control interfaces.

Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii Technology, says that it is only a matter of years before the technology becomes an integral part of the average computer as the tracking technology is mature enough and only needs to be miniaturised and mass produced to cut down on price.
No matter how many years pass, I can't see this ever becoming mainstream.

However, you will look like a boss while using it.

The path to ultimate laziness has just opened up.

What a waste.

With the average persons computer usage going through the roof, and starting at a very young age, things such as carpal tunnel, and repetitive stress injuries will become more and more common. This could be an excellent solution for handicapped people such as this.

They already have that stuff developed, it's just not mainstream and affordable. I remember seeing it in a documentary in 1998 or so.

Doubt this will take off. It seems like it would be a bit clumsy.

When I can cheaply embed a flea sized computer chip into my brain and control a computer, let me know.
