Steer a Car Using Eye Movements

Don’t try this at home just yet, but scientists have demonstrated they can steer a car using eye movements, giving new meaning to the term “hands free.” With eyeDriver prototype software, the eye movements of the driver are collected and converted into control signals for the steering wheel.
Scientists in Berlin demonstrated driving a car with this technology recently in front of 60 journalists said ScienceDaily. They used a bicycle helmet equipped with two cameras and an IR LED plus a laptop running special software. One camera films the driver’s eyes and the other points outward, “viewing” the road ahead.
Scientists at Freie Universität designed the software in collaboration with the company, SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI). If you’re geeky enough to want more information, read the full story here.
