CES 2012: Tobii's Windows 8 Gaze Interface is controlled with your eyes

1:14 /

Rafe Needleman sits down with a new technology from Tobii that lets you control your computer with your eyes.

Hi. It's Rafe Needleman at CES with the first look at Tobii Gaze Control Interface for Windows 8. Now, Windows 8 on a tablet is a nice touch interface. But the guys at Tobii said they can do a better job by using your eyes and where you're looking to control the interface. Now, I tried this the other night and it works out really well. What you do on this laptop here where I saw the demo is you hold down I think the Windows key and look at the icon or the tablet you... you want and the release the key and boom, you're there. If you're in on an application like Word or Excel, you look at a word or a cell, again and then hit a button and boom, you selected that cell. I was really skeptical if this thing could work at all because come on, we use our eyes to see things, not to control things, but I tried the Tobii Gaze Controller interface for Windows 8 and it really does work. Now, it's a prototype technology right now. This laptop that we're trying on at is a Frankenstein. They've built it themselves, but it really does work and I'm really looking forward to seeing tablets like this may become what the Gaze Control Interface in the near future. I'm Rafe Needleman for CNEt.
