With the Kinect and other motion based interfaces becoming so popular, it was only a matter of time before mobile platforms embraced face-tracking. This Umoove app allows users to control their phones simply by looking at it.

Umoove is a company that is pioneering this face-tracking movement with its two apps. One app is a face-tracker and the other an eye-tracker. This innovation is far from completed but for right now it can be used in Umoove's portable game.

The game sees users controlling a character that flies around in the virtual world collecting goodies. The game is completely run through the face-tracking system, and while the technology is still not complete, it works well. Pulling off specific or very difficult movements is still a work in progress, but you can expect to see this kind of gaming take off in the near future.
