Invention Idea #7: Eye-movement- tracking goggles that would replace the mouse. Good Idea?
The mouse click could be triggered by a slightly prolonged blink (to differentiate from normal blinks).
Especially good idea for the physically impaired. I could see it taking quite a while to develop.
Hmm...that IS a good idea. And it would be pretty easy to create, I think. Video games already have the capability to read light (a la the Wii). It seems like a pretty easy leap to read eyes instead of a controller. Cool.
pretty good idea. when you blink does that count as clicking?
Actually, this idea has some limitations. When a user visits a webpage, their eye will scan the page very rapidly to see what is available and then decide where they want to click.
It could get extremely annoying to have the cursor bouncing all over the screen (if it could even keep up with the rapid eye movements) when all a person is trying to do is see what their options are. It would be especially difficult when trying to highlight, drag & drop, etc.
Overall, it's a good idea, but I see some challenges.
