[MWC 2010] Forget about using your fingers to control the volume of your earphones, alongside a change in tracks. NTT DoCoMo demonstrated their new eye-controlled earphones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. All eye movement is detected by electrodes, enabling users to send commands to their device where among them include play, pause, and skip. This is made possible since eyeballs contain minute electrical potential which can be measured by sticking electrodes in our ears. Apparently, specific eye gestures can be recorded to perform just about any command on a smartphone. We do wonder whether it is really more convenient compared to the tried and tested method of using one’s fingers and buttons. We’ve also seen eye-controlled cellphones at CEATEC last year, if you’re interested in such technology.
