Microsoft patents a keyboard that tracks your eye movements

44 sec read

Microsoft has obtained a patent for a technology that makes it possible to control a virtual keyboard by looking at it. By looking at different keys on the keyboard it should be possible to enter text without actually touching the device. Users don’t have to look at each character separately, the technology works similar as current Swype keyboards which allow swiping from character to character while keeping the finger on the screen.

While some of us still prefer tapping out keys on the keyboard when typing on our smartphones and tablets, there are some who believe that using keyboards like Swype is a faster alternative. For those who are unfamiliar with Swype, it’s basically a keyboard that lets you slide your finger over the letters you want to type out words. Well wouldn’t it be more awesome if you could type out words and sentences in that method, except using your eyes? Well that’s an idea that Microsoft has and one that they have recently patented. The idea is similar to swiping keyboards, except that in this case the system would be able to recognize your eye movements instead, so users can glance left and right, up and down to type out their words.
