Control your Gadgets by Sensing Electrical Signals from Eye Movements

Controlling your Gadgets by Sensing Electrical Signals from Eye Movements may seem like a concept that is only possible in your dreams but some researchers have made it a reality.

"The researcher, staring at a large screen, rolls his eyes clockwise and a digital music player on the screen responds by increasing the volume of the music track being played. Then a kind of visual ping pong begins as the scientist’s eyes dart one way and the player fast forwards to the next song, then they dart in another direction and the music skips back to the previous track. Controlling the operation of remote devices with the flick of an eye may sound like science fiction, but it’s all in a day’s work for Dr. Masaaki Fukumoto, Executive Research Engineer at NTT DOCOMO’s Frontier Technology Research Group, where ongoing research promises to revolutionize the way we interact with technologies to make our daily lives more convenient and enjoyable."

    I think this is awesome stuff, but I worry I might get a headache moving my eyes back and forth so much 😉

    good point —->jack but it is still good progress can’t wait when we will be able to interact with devices or each other by directly with brain or throw amplifier

    Ten years ago Cannon had a video camera that would follow the eye movement in the viewfinder so you could alter the focus just by looking. A box would move around the screen as you moved your eye.

    Can’t use it while you’re driving, that’s for sure.
