NUIA eyeCharm Kickstarter Promises Kinect-Enabled Eye Tracking and Control

A Kickstarter campaign is underway for a Kinect add-on device that supposedly enables consumers to control their computers using eye tracking. The add-on technology is called the NUIA eyeCharm and it is the creation of Munich, Germany-based firm 4tiitoo. The creators of this technology claim that it will allow users to select items on your computer screen "just by looking at them," control games and even "automatically scroll" windows to adjust while reading.

4tiitoo also claims that the NUIA eyeCharm can be installed on your computer in less than ten minutes. It clips onto your Kinect, but requires special software to do its magic.

Check out the pitch video to your left for more information. As of this writing, the NUIA eyeCharm has generated $35,358 of its $100,000 goal, with 22 days more to go. The estimated delivery date for the device is August 2013, according to the Kickstarter page.
