Tobii Rex in action

tobii rexPicture the scene, you’re sat in front of your monitor with Windows 8 running in all its glory and you think to yourself, ‘I’m sick of just using my mouse!’ Fear not lazy people, Tobii Rex is here to help. With the power of your eyes you can control any Windows 8 PC to move and control the screen how you would like. This stand alone piece of kit sits underneath the monitor and tracks the movement of your eyes and relays it back to the computer accordingly, now I know what you’re thinking, there is going to be a spaghetti of wires with this fancy bit of kit. Nope, it’s a simple USB!

Tobii Rex was unveiled last year at CES, sadly though don’t expect to use it anytime soon. There’s only 5,000 going to be produced for now, and they’re going to consumers at a closely guarded price. Although developers are able to get their hands on one for $995 in the form of a special developers edition. The use of your eyes to control your Windows 8 PC could be something to behold. You could say that you would have to see it to believe it. Yes.
