Eye Tracking Computer

Lenovo is devolping a computer that will use eye tracking help control the computer.  They are teaming up with Swedish eye-control company Tobii, and say that the earliest release would be in two years.  Using a motion sensing device similar to Kinect for X-Box, the laptop has amazing accuracy.  It could be used to play games, or help select items on the computer.  It would not be useful to replace a mouse however because, the movement would be crazy and detracting.  However, this technology could some day be used in conjunction with a keyboard and mouse, and be extremely useful.
