'Eye Tracking' laptop

There might come a day soon when you won't even have to lift your hand to click an icon on the screen -- instead all you have to do is move your eyes and your laptop will do as you wish -- open files, play music or view pictures.
The laptop, presented at the CeBIT, the world's top tech fair in Hanover, Germany, uses cutting-edge "eye tracking" technology by Swedish firm Tobii that follows the movement of the user's eyes and allows him or her to operate menus and select icons.

And when you are not looking at it, it automatically goes into screen saver mode. It restarts as soon as the user glances at the monitor again.

 "It's definitely going to be in the laptops of the future. You can do pretty much anything you would do with your normal laptop," Discovery News quoted Anders Olsson from Tobii as saying.

"We've been stuck for a quarter of a century with a keyboard and a mouse. It's time to move to the next step and eye control technology is the perfect solution."
