Video Game Lets Players Shoot With Their Eyes
If you could have one super power, what would it be? The power to kill your enemies using only your eyes? Your wish is granted.
EyeAsteroids, a $15,000 old school arcade game, lets you shoot down asteroids using your eyes alone.
This is no hocus-pocus mumbo jumbo mind-reading freak-out though. The game simply tracks your eye movement, estimating the point at which your gaze lands using image sensor technology. The sensor finds your eyes and calculating the gaze using a mathematical algorithms. That's science.
The obvious advantage to a hands-free arcade game is not having to share germy consoles with sweaty, sticky gamers. The other alternative is to carry antibacterial wipes, and that just comes across as pernickity.
Given the price point, its more than likely that the queue for this game will be much shorter than your average Xbox release. Plus you'll probably be the only kid/adult who should know better, in the neighbourhood with one making you instantly popular.
