Microsoft has begun to test the futuristic Eye Control function, which will allow you to control your computer with your eyes. In particular, the beta version of the program makes it possible to replace the mouse, keyboard and voice commands by visual manipulation. Users of Windows 10, having a tracking device, can already test the novelty on their computer.
Eye Control will be of interest primarily to users with disabilities. Development began 3 years ago at the request of former player of the National Football League Steve Gleason, suffering from amyotrophic lateral syndrome (ALS). With this disease only the eyes have the ability to move. Using Eye Control technology, Steve Glisson has learned to control a wheelchair with a glance.
Last week, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that the Eye Control feature will be included in the list of Windows 10 features, for which users must download the update and the corresponding application for the Tobii eye tracking sensor. While technology, however, has one drawback – it does not function in strong sunlight.

If you do not have the software, and you cannot find it on the website of the manufacturer of the computer device, then we will help you. Tell us the model of your printer, scanner, monitor or other computer device, as well as the version of the operating system (for example: Windows 10, Windows 8, etc.).
