I suggested there (but there were already developments, at least for disabled persons, if not for every computer user)
to track with a camera the eye position of a computer user and let software deduce where the user looks at.
Then, special keys - I'd like them at the keyboard - would tell what action to start with the object looked at.
This is meant as a pointing device to replace mices, touchpads and other trackballs.
Meanwhile (or they started before?), the Swedish company Tobii develops such a pointing device
resembling my description.
And now Tobii's development could be integrated to Windows 8, as has just been made public at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas:
at Youtube : 3MoGzTdQnX8 (demo video by Tobii)
I'd like to have such a possibility on the computer I use, if it's quick and accurate.
But above all, I need some credible proof that the camera can only send data to that piece of the computer.
