Samsung Galaxy S IV Will Track Your Eyes to Scroll [NYTimes]
The New York Times is reporting that the Samsung Galaxy S IV will feature Eye Scrolling.
The phone will track a user’s eyes to determine where to scroll, said a Samsung employee who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. For example, when users read articles and their eyes reach the bottom of the page, the software will automatically scroll down to reveal the next paragraphs of text.
The paper notes that Samsung has filed for a trademark on the mark "Eye Scroll" in Europe and for another trademark on the mark "Samsung Eye Scroll" in the United States. The service is being described as “Computer application software having a feature of sensing eye movements and scrolling displays of mobile devices, namely, mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers according to eye movements; digital cameras; mobile telephones; smartphones; tablet computers.” Additionally, the company has also filed for the trademark "Eye Pause".
Earlier today Samsung posted its first teaser video for the smartphone that is widely expected to be the iPhone's strongest competitor.
