    According to a New York Times blog, their source was able to confirm that the new Samsung Galaxy S IV will indeed be coming with eye-tracking software that will allow eye scrolling and eye pausing. This was something we reported back in January as a possibility, because of a Samsung trademark filing. Here's a quote from the article with a few more details,

    Despite the highlighted importance of the new software advancements, the article goes on to elaborate that the hardware will still be quite significant,

    Stay tuned for a follow-up rumor a bit later that supposedly confirms some of this info.

    I think I can expend 0.01 calories required to scroll down with my thumb, saving what I'd expect to be a major battery hog.

    Sounds pretty slick, but I bet the first version will be more of a not-ready-for-primetime novelty.

    STuff like this doesn't even interest me. Does it anyone else? I get not everyone drops Samsung OS mods for AOSP like I and others do, but do other users who just pick it up at the store adn use it as is? Even before I rom'd my phone, I didn't like most of Samsung's features.

    very interesting

    As a future S IV owner I look forward to checking out all the new innovations. It make take awhile for the bugs to get ironed out, but all good things have to start somewhere - -
