CES 2012: Control Windows 8 with your eyes

2:23 /

Tobii's Anders Olsson drives a custom laptop using his company's gaze-tracking technology.

Hi, Salem. It's (Olsen?) from Toby Technology. What I have here is laptop with an eye-tracking (feature?). With an eye-track, you can do is best sure it's about a quarter inch level position where the the eyes are looking at the screen. What you're gonna see here is how combine this with the touchpad to make it possible to do it everything we would otherwise do on a Tablet, but now instead you can do it on a laptop and a lot of things become very easy to use. So to start off, if I want to launch an application in the site, all I need to do is hold down the release button and then whatever I look at will automatically light up. So I'm looking at the Explorer now, but he have ignored that because I'm gonna up Word, so now I go down to open Word and then as I release, Word opens up for me. Now, here at Word, I've got 2 Word documents open. And if I want to scroll through them just like I would on a tablet where I would do this type of (??). Here, instead I just look at whatever I want to scroll through and then quickly swipe... swipe up on the touchpad and it'll start scrolling for me. Now, I wanna go into this one and then I swipe up the same way. Back at the left one, swipe back down and with the document comes back for me. So going back now into this document, I could do a lot of other things as well. For example I can get a very high level of position that I could never get on a touch device. So if I go into Excel, for example I can really hit each and every individual cell here with ease. On a touch device, I would touch dial and then if I tried to hit that cell G3, it might mess up, we're gonna hit FG2 instead. Something (??) but here I have the advantage of my fingers (??) here, so if I wanna to touch the cell I6 here now, I just hold down my finger and then if the cell I find you, then I can always get right to where when I wanna go. If I wanna make the text bold, I just click up there, hit the bold button, etc. etch. And this... through this way of attracting, I can do all kinds of things and as of with otherwise becomes boring tiresome (work?) on the laptop the way I traditionally always had to do it with the keyboard in laps.
