Tobii and Lenovo Experiment With Eye-Controlled Laptop

Eye tracking equipment maker Tobii recently demonstrated an experimental laptop designed in collaboration with Lenovo that uses a person’s eye movements to interact with the computer’s user interface.

The interactions involve combining mouse clicks or keystrokes with eye movements to provide an enhanced user experience. The eye tracking dimension of the demonstration shows that eye movement would be used to complement, not replace, keyboard and track pad input from the user’s hands. Anders Olsson of Tobii demonstrates in the video below the modified Windows 7 user experience.
