The eyes have it as eyegaze tech picks up awards. Carol Allen and Ian Bean explain why it's so important
From April 15 in Finchley, London, artist Sarah Ezekiel will hold another in her series of art exhibitions created on a computer controlled by her eyes. Sarah, who has motor neurone disease, uses an eyegaze system developed by Tobii to produce stunning images by controlling the art package by looking at the on-screen tools and menus.
Computers controlled with your eyes? Surely that’s science fiction, alongside hover-packs and teleportation? Yet it is here now and in classrooms, and homes, near you.
