The Eye Tribe brings eye control to Android, opens it to developers in June
Along with the official announcement of the eye control technology, The Eye Tribe has also said a developer SDK will be coming to Android in June.
“What we show today is only the tip of the iceberg of what eye control will be used for in applications and games,” The Eye Tribe co-founder Sune Alstrup Johansen said.
Ther There lots of application for the technology - from logging in using your eyes, to hands free scrolling using only your eyes and novel game controls.
The Eye Tribe has won investors’ approval and raised a total of $3.3 million in funding.

I always thought that using the fingers on a screen is way better,than this motion or eye control things.
Well I guess that they said this about the touchscreens a few years ago.

This was the tech that was mentioned for the S4 but never half made it. I can see this being useful for those with larger screened handsets and tablets alike (like the Galaxy Mega and upcoming Togari), where using two hands becomes a task in some cases!

The problem playing Fruit Ninja is that when the bombs appear you WILL look at them...
hehehe anyway great innovation, hopefully more apps and OS features take advantage of this.

Just think those who are physically disabled or can't speak could use this to communicate with others by just moving their eyes!
