The Eye Tribe creates software that allows users to interact with their mobile device just by looking at it. Activate the screen, scroll websites automatically as you read and play games using your eyes!
The image captured by the front-facing camera of the smartphone or tablet is analyzed using computer-vision algorithms. Eye Tribe software can determine the location of the eyes and estimate where you're looking on the screen with an accuracy good enough to know which icon you're looking at.
The version showcased in the videos uses the "EyeDock", an add-on with an inexpensive webcam and an infrared LED. These are standard components and can be integrated into a mobile device using the front-facing camera and a built-in LED.
The first device with the software is expected to hit the market in 2013.
