Soon You Can Control Your Smartphone With Your Eyes
What if we say that “Soon you can control your smartphone with your eyes”, yes, you might be thinking that what rubbish we are talking about. But, the international tech experts and researchers from all over the world including one of Indian origin are developing a new and advanced smartphone software which will let you control your smartphone with your eye.
Yes, now its sounds really interesting, a tech team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), University of Georgia and Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Germany has so far been able to develop the special software that can perfectly identify where a person is looking in real time. So, it is a high-tech technology which will let the user control their device with their own naked eyes as we mentioned earlier.
According to the study, the co-author Aditya Khosla from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said that “It’s still not exact enough to use for consumer applications, but, the system’s efficiency will improve with more data”.
As we all know that the technology has been highly expensive and has required the hardware that has made it tricky to add the capability to gadgets like phones and tablets. Hence, to accomplish this, the tech experts and researchers has developed an app known as the “GazeCapture” which gathers all the essential data about how people look at their smartphones in different conditions.
The researchers recorded the Users’ gaze with the help of the smartphone’s front camera as they were shown vibrating dots on a smartphone screen. To make sure the tech experts and researchers were paying attention, they were then shown a dot with an “L” or “R” inside it, and then they had to tap the left or right side of the screen in response.
The co author Aditya Khosla from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) said that “About 1,500 people have used the GazeCapture app so far”. Hence, the co-author Aditya Khosla also added that if the researchers and the project experts can get the data from 10,000 people then they will be able to overcome the software’s error rate to half a centimetre, which should be good enough for a range of eye-tracking applications.
