Gaze TV – Control the Television with your Eyes
The people over at Haier & Tobii showcased their new remote design at Berlins IFA trade show. The whole concept of it is, that you don’t have to lift a finger to change the channel, turn the volume up, or even recording a program. You can do it all with your eyes!
The key to this product is that the sensor stands on top of a table rather than attached to the actual television making it compatible with companies that have decided to include their software into their televisions. The founders of the project have also made their technology available to companies to explore the possibilities of their product.
The company have also previously worked on computers that can be controlled via the eyes. This was aimed at people who have had strokes or other disabilities against using a computer. The only problem setting the company from selling thousands of products is the price.
So this product is one more step into our futuristic lifestyle. Who knows, this time next year we could be flying around in hovercars!
