The new era of laziness: eye controlled gaming

Just when we thought that we were making a breakthrough in reducing childhood obesity by bringing elements of physical activity into video gaming (Wii, Kinect, Move), some folks have decided to take a step back and make gaming even easier to control than with a gamepad.
