Eye-tracking smartphone – Samsung’s latest smartphone is gaining attention for a swathe of new features and center place is the new eye-tracking technology.
Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is going to be rolled out world-wide by the end of April. When the range was first introduced it was seen by many as just a non-Apple iPhone with similar sizing and features. However as the models have progressed the smartphone is coming into it’s own and this latest outing, although gimmicky, is showing real progress in individual development of the companies product.
New features include photographs that use both front and back cameras to include the picture taker, translation of text via the camera and of course the much talked about eye-tracking.
Eye-tracking could be great for one-handed use and if it works well will allow users to scroll through pages, start and stop video and a number of other functions. It could be truly revolutionary in the growth of human-tech relations or it could fail miserably if the tech is clunky.
The model will be sporting a slightly larger screen that the S3 and a few other hardware updates but really the software is what the focus seems to be on with this update.
Here is a report and hands on from the BBC:
Will you be wanting to get your hands on one of these?
