How to control your mouse pointer with your eyes? Is it possible? The Answer is yes. Swedish eye tracking innovator Tobii Technology who previously made the World's first eye controlled video games called tobii asteroid has made another cool amazing invention called Tobii's Gaze Eye Tracking which enables you to control your mouse pointer with your eyes movement in Windows 8 Based Computers. See more about Windows 8 on our previous post.

The touchscreen-oriented Windows 8 helps the technology work smoothly. Furthermore, if the Gaze eye-controlling is used together with touchscreen, the result will be more superb, claims Tobii. Yes, the PC will perform better than just controlling it with touchscreens only. The main question is how the Tobii's Gaze eye tracking work to enables the eye controlled mouse pointer? The technology works when a sensor tracks eye gestures of users. Movements of eye, which are collected via a webcam-like add-on, helps users scroll down, scroll up, select, open up and close items on the computer. A gaze downwards and upwards a webpage means it will scroll up and down. Staring on an icon on the desktop is equal to double click and blink is single click. Of course, all your eye gestures propel various actions on a computer.

However, mixture of eyeball gymnastics and touchscreen is the best way to interact with a computer using the Gaze eye tracking. Tobii Technology’s CEO Henrik Eskilsson has shown up a prototype Lenovo laptop with the eye tracking technology. Tobii will display the technology at the upcoming CES 2012 in Las Vegas to show the world how its Gaze eye tracking system operates.

Indeed, the technology will be a blessing for people with physical challenges. As they won’t be able move their hands to use the mouse, Gaze can help them control the entire system with eyes. Moreover, it is quite easy to control a PC using eye tracking technology rather than a mouse. The physical effort is less in using Gaze to operate your PC. But, it is not sure whether it will cause some strain to eyes. It can be seen only when the company unveils the technology for public.

The upcoming version of Windows 8 combines both touchscreen and eye controls. It is for the first time Microsoft has given importance to eye controls and touchscreen orientation on its operating system. Due to realize by the middle of this year, Windows 8 is to feature some drastic changes from its traditional style.

The new Windows OS will have tiles instead of windows to indicate icons and there will be entirely different Metro-style interface. These improvements further help users control the PC with eye tracking technology. There is less effort in finding an app, open and close it. See what the CEO of Tobii says of the technology below,

Gaze is as natural and intuitive as touch, as precise as the mouse and more ergonomic and effortless than both. Once you have experienced Gaze, a laptop without it feels just as ancient as a laptop without a touch pad.
