Now you can build Lego with your EYES
The Consumer Electronics Show is the gift that keeps on giving this week, as thousands of nerds descend on all the latest gadgets at a huge conference that inevitably smells like Lynx Africa and cider.
Now comes word of a new learning tool that will allow users to build LEGO with the eyes. THEIR EYES.
Eye-tracking software developer The Eye Tribe showed off an interface that allows users to build LEGO sets using just their eyes at the show.
And it's not just fancy-dan futurism either, as the software has been used to control mobile devices, computers, gaming consoles and TVs. Now, they're working with LEGO to provide a new way to build LEGO
"We're extremely excited to be back at CES and to show how quickly we've advanced our products for mobile form factors," said Sune Alstrup Johansen, CEO of The Eye Tribe. "With our solution, OEMs can fast-track integration of real eye tracking. We want to bust the myth that it is an expensive and complicated affair."
Martin Tall, chief technology officer of The Eye Tribe, added: "Our vision is to transition eye tracking from being an expensive lab equipment into every day products. Soon this technology will be integrated into a wide range of devices such as tablets and smartphones.
"It will enable you to interact with devices in ways that you only dreamed were possible. Devices will behave more intuitively, games will become more immersive."
Yeah, impressive, but not as much fun as annoying other people as you rattle through a tub for particular pieces though, eh.
