First, tablets dismiss clicking and transforms into tapping directly on the screen. Then, they wanted to eradicate the use of hands altogether and make use of our stark eyes to navigate our computer.
Tobii, a swedish company, instituted the technology of eye tracking. With just the movement of your eyes, you can switch from surfing the internet to organizing your personal files. You could watch the demo video in Use Your Eyes Instead Of A Mouse.
I get it. It is really cool and futuristic. All they want us to do is sit in our computer and let our eyes do the work. Computer then will even be more boring. They are inducing people to be alone since it is a problem when two people are looking in one screen. Personal computers will indeed be per person.
I think it is also leeway to further laziness. And since you move your eyes, you are putting more pressure on your two precious eyeballs, leading to increased potential eyestrain.
I think there’s nothing wrong with my mouse. I can stick to it. And I like using my hands. But this technology is useful for people with hand problems, such as tremors, or disabilities.
Are you ready to let go of your computer mouse?
