Originally created for disabled individuals, a new way to interface with a computer has been developed, in place of the universally-accepted mouse. The new technology tracks eye movements and allows users to navigate through web pages, scroll and click all through eye movements.

Implications - The developer behind this new technology is a researcher at Standford University named Manu Kumar who was also helped by his professor Terry Winograd. They claim that the interface is very easy to operate since all the user has to do is move their eyes. This new technology is an amazing step for those who are paralyzed and do not have the ability to move their arms.
