Control Your PC Using Your Eyes

Called the Tobii PCEye, the gadget is primarily designed for customers with limited motor skills or spinal injuries this USB device allows the user to control a PC by eye movement.

Users can control their entire computer through gazing, blinking or dwelling on an item with their eyes.

Like an old-school webcam, the Tobi PCEye mounts on the bottom of an LCD panel and connects to the PC via a USB port.

Although the company didn't get into the details on how the device actually works, Tobii said that its eye tracking technology can effectively track nearly every user (over 95-percent) regardless of eye color, lighting conditions, environments or head movement. Tobii also said that its track box (explained as the box defining the area/volume in which a person's eyes can be tracked) is one of the largest on the market.

"The Tobii PCEye won’t slow down your computer, or restrict you from staying up to date with technology," the company said.
