Samsung Announces EyeCAN Pointing Device for Disabled

Samsung announced EyeCAN, a pointing device (mouse-replacement) for people that are physically-handicapped. The device is a glasses-mounted solution that precisely tracks eye movements, allowing the user to move the mouse pointer accurately. The user needn't use a single muscle to click on anything that they see on their computer screen. Samsung announced the EyeCAN today as a working-prototype, with plans to start selling it to the general public later this year, priced at roughly 50,000 Won (US $44).

I not sure, however, I do know that it has all the functionality of a standard mouse.

I am pretty sure a normal click is a double blink and a menu click is crossing your eyes.

no only joking...not sure but yet this brings gaming to mind for me as well.
