A wearable with eye-tracking technology? It doesn't sound so far-fetched thanks to this prototype from The Eye Tribe.
BARCELONA -- The Eye Tribe has its eyes set on tackling the wild new world of wearables.
Click through the slideshow for a closer look at the promising eye-tracking prototype.
A development prototype of the exposed hardware on an elastic band is modded to work off a Sony Smartwatch.
As you can see, it's far from a finished product.
The current focus of the prototype is to work with speed-reading app Spritz, which throws one big word at a time for quick reads on small displays.
The watch hardware is a non-working prototype, but Senior Editor Scott Stein tried Spritz on a PC using The Eye Tribe hardware, and it worked as advertised.
The Eye Tribe also makes a $99 eye-tracking device for tablets and PCs. Here you can see it running on a PC.
The Eye Tribe hopes that eventually its eye-tracking tech can help manage applications or turn on the display when your eyes are specifically on it. Rest assured we'll keep our eyeballs peeled for this feature in future smartwatches.
