Keep your finger down now. There is no use of fingers now, you can turn pages with eyes!
With this new technology, you can read a book without having to lift a finger.
E-books, tablets and computers are great ways to call up information, unless your hands aren’t free to make use of them.
Computer technicians and mechanics often need to page through repair manuals while on the job, but that takes a while to do even when the text is online. It also breaks up the technician’s train of thought and adds to the time it takes to finish the job.
For this new device, researchers at the Fraunhofer Center for Organics, Materials and Electronic Devices in Dresden, Germany, have designed an interactive, head-mounted display based on organic light-emitting diode technology.
The Fraunhofer design tracks the movements of the eyes, using a combination of the LEDs (to transmit both light and the image) and photodetectors, which pick up the eye’s position. It’s essentially a combination display and digital camera.
The eye’s position takes the place of a finger swipe on a tablet or a mouse click — glancing at the arrow in the display, for instance turns a page.
