Full technology allows you to work and relax, controlling various processes on the computer with the help of sight can be indispensable for many people. She will be able to use, for example, paralyzed people, physically deprived of the opportunity to interact with the computer. Technology will certainly appreciate gamers, children and professionals in various fields, which development will help to cope with their daily duties. Despite the fact that such developments already exist, they are all infinitely far from perfect, but engineers continue to think in this direction, so periodically, albeit on paper, new ideas, some of which look quite promising.
One of the developments registered with the U.S. patent and trademark office, describes the principle of operation of a multiplayer device tracking look.
One of the key researchers mentioned in the document, was Walter Nistico, technical Director of the Department of computer vision and deep learning of Apple. Previously, he worked in the engineering Department of the company SensoMotoric Instruments, which Apple acquired in 2017.
Previously, Apple had already registered the patent of technology for tracking gaze glasses augmented reality, but the new application describes something completely different, and the points immediately.
Described in the patent is connected to the computer device that is able to track the person’s gaze, and then project it in real time on the screen pointing to the location where the user’s gaze, designator. Thus it would be possible to browse web pages, navigate through your computer folders, run certain files, and much more, for example, read our telegram channel.
The document provides the use of the device: it can be paired with the TV, computer or tablet, the games, used video conferencing and even in the operating room.
As for the games, in the presence of such a device combines entertainment can be transformed. Yes, the technology is described by the developers, involves the ability to track and keep sight of one or a few people, who will then be able to play with each other in checkers, chess, or cards.
Sitting in front of a TV equipped with such a system, the user can change the image settings, adjust the volume and change channels without making absolutely no visible activity. However, several viewers will be able to adjust some settings independently.
Unfortunately, the presence of a registered patent does not mean that the company will engage in such development in the future. We also have no information about which products the company this development might be created — Mac, Apple TV , or something else? In any case, the scope for imagination enough, because SensoMotoric Instruments bought another in 2017, but what she did after starting work at Apple, is also unknown.
It is worth noting that now Apple has something similar. On iPhone and iPad with Face ID has long implemented a similar control system, only universal and compatible with other devices its not exactly call.
