    Actually the thing about the eye movement controlling the mouse is sort of true.

    Some of the U.S. airforce's newest fighter jets allow the weapons to be aimed by looking at the target. They just watch the pilots eyes and feed back the position into the targeting system.

    The second idea is just BS.

    Seems very much like he elaborated ..err thats not the word.. the word where you inflate something beyond reality.. $$$$.. I know this ... all well.. seems like hes elaborated on a scientific american eppisode where they went to MIT and they had computer geeks using sunglasses and light head goggles as computer screen carrying the computer itself in phanny type packs and backpacks too. They also covered in the same eppisode a brand new vision procedure for the blind where they implant a tiny processor into the brain with wiring that comes out behind the ear. The wiring connects to a minicamera in the special sun glasses and allows blind to see in dotted monochrome vision. Very amazing (and TRUE) stuff.

    I think the word you were looking for is exaggerate.

    Wait... This discussion is all about moving the cursor with eye... How about Left-clicking, double-clicking and Right-clicking?

    If you are assuming the technology does exist to ask the question--then really think about it.. You do have a left and right eye. hence blink once, blink twice..So assuming that there was such technology the how to have mouse functions via the eye is quite trivial.

    Don't forget we have Drap & Drop as well!
    Also how about some option that need both left and right click to be activated in the same time? Eg. Logitech has a mouse driver that need the 2 buttons to be clicked at the same time to scroll programs.

    So don't program the driver like that and you're fine! It's easy. And drag and drop could be done with one eye closed and the other moving.
    Away.

    If you metaphorically punched him in the face, he shoulda punched you back.

    Most of the tech he discussed is here.

    1. LCD screens in glasses. Done - Look for wearable PCs on the net.
    2. Eye-controlled curson. Done, but not usefull. Takes too much hardware at the moment. Usually infrared light shone onto eye, camera calculates angle of eye, with blinks for clicks.
    3. Mind-control keyboard. Possibly done. MC is very crude, mostly binary descision like yes/no, up down, etc. Have to make several selections to type one letter.
    4. PC in brain. Here you just gotta be patient. Its coming closer very fast. The tech is developing so quickly - Just the other day they finally began developing tissue-non-destructive electrones, ie. wires into your brain that don't kill cells.

    However, none of these technologies are integrated yet. Closest we got are wearable PCs. With electrodes int he brain you can get a practically unlimited human-machine interface. It's scary stuff. Matrix style.

    This is just about there with things like cochlear implants. At the moment, the processor is outside of the body and communicates with the implant via an rf field, but one Danish company Oticon, (sorry it's in Danish), recently announced a smarter implant in which the speech processor etc., is built into the implant.

    I know about those. Those are the closest some-one's ever come to making a machine-to-human input without actually implanting electroned in the brain. The implants fit in the spiral thing in your ear, the one that usually absorbs sound waves into nerve signals.

    See, they only work for ppl who have those nerves intact but have screwed-up earbones or eardrum or sound transmission into that shell thing.

    Ever hear of Kevin Warwick? He's a British guy that thinks way to much of himself. He implanted a RFID chip in his arm and then wrote a book about himself being the first ever true cyborg.

    I think that people with cochleat implants have first stake in that field if anyone ever wanted to find the "first true cyborg".

    Kevin Warwick's claim is just plain lame. I mean, if a pet has an RFID chip implanted, which is done quite often now, does that make your pet a cyborg?!?

    "Oooh, I got a bionic dog !!!" Pfffft. I just remembered. There was actually a show about a bionic dog. First the bionic man, then woman, boy, girl and finally came the bionic dog. 70s SciFi. *Shudder*

    I heard of some guy doing something like that, too. I immediately dismissed it because it's so retarded.
