Sweden-based Tobii Technology, a maker of eye tracking and gaze interaction systems, announces its selection as a Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum.
With Google Project Glass and Mirosoft Fortaleza Glasses the eye tracking might play a big role in the future applications.
Earlier this year Tobii was recognized by Microsoft for its development of Tobii Gaze, an eye-tracking computer interaction method for the Windows that is said to provide users a more natural, comfortable and intuitive interaction method for computers as the company continues to pursue its vision of eye tracking-enabled consumer computing.
In this Youtube video Tobii's CTO and co-founder John Elvesjö talks about the company plans to bring the eye tracking to the mass market:
