    Samsung Taking 'Smart Stay' Eye Tracking to New Level with Eye Scroll & Eye Pause


    Samsung just filed trademarks on some intriguing new concepts. They are called, Eye Scroll & Eye Pause. The industry speculation is these ideas are an extension of a feature that is already included in the new SGS3, called "Smart Stay." If you haven't seen it, it basically keeps your phone's display from fading out while the camera sees yours eyes staring at it. While no specific details about Eye Scroll & Eye Pause are currently known, it's not hard to imagine what they do. Eye Pause will likely pause a video when the phone detects you have looked away, and Eye Scroll might scroll your screen or your browser based upon how long you look at a specific place on the display.

    At this time all we have to go on is just a trademark filing, so there is no telling on when/if these features will actually come to our devices. It's even possible Samsung has already worked out the kinks and we may see these features with the new SGS4. Of course, as image recognition software continues to evolve, eventually many of our devices will likely get features just like this. What do you think of these ideas?

    I'm guessing it's not that dissimilar from smart tech in tv's that recognize hand gestures (which could be a problem for these patents).

    The video thing could be useful if it had a timer (wouldn't want it to pause every time I look away for a few seconds), I suppose.

    Main benefit I could see would be for reading articles so that it would autoscroll when your eyes get near the bottom.

    And good luck with battery life if the camera is active that much.

    Never used the features. When my S3 was stock, I found nearly all those features to be time wasting and just not intuitive.

    wow. Samsung is really going for it in every direction. Good for them. This feature may not be the greatest today, but give it some time, I could see it being a clutch patent. I was under the impression that google's project glass was supposed to have some eye-tracking abilities

    that'd be fun to have actually. Imagine if someone is looking over your shoulder, you'll know instantly haha. But seriously, having technology like that would be amazing.
