Eyegaze comes to mobile phones

Samsung Galaxy S3

As of April 2013 people will be able to buy, albeit quite expensively, a mobile phone that is accessible partly using eye control. This is similar to the eye control technology more frequently associated with equipment that costs many thousands of pounds. The eye control appears to be limited to pausing video when looking away and automatically scrolling text when the gaze reaches the bottom of the screen.

Although this in no way allows access to the smartphone using eye gaze only it does pave the way for improvements to the software which could allow future tablets to be controlled entirely using eye-gaze.

I’m definitely going to keep my eye on this one.
