    Write a letter with your eyes

    Scientists from Cambridge Uni in the UK have created a method that makes it possible to write using your eyes. The method is quite genious, and they have a demo ready for everyone to try. Myself I was pretty impressed with the teqnique. Of course I don't have the eye-camera that is needed in the real application, but in the demo it's possible to use the mouse instead. But you still get the impression it would work even with a camera attached to your eye. This must be something like a breakthorugh for peole with movement disabilites!

    Could be, but I wouldn't be comfortable with walking around with a camera on my head! But the tecnique is probably faster than using one of them touch-screens with handwriting recognition. (I never found them very usable anyway...)

    Kewl, this would acctualy help alot of people, but I think they may have to put a filter on it, some people don't have 'Full' controle of their eye's so they may quiver or shake....still nice idea...
