Soon, drag-drop files on systems with just a stare!

London, Dec. 12 : A new system has been reportedly devised that allows users to drag and drop files to or from their computer screen, smartphone and tablet.

The head-mounted eye-tracker system, dubbed EyeDrop, records the wearer's field of view and tracks the eye movement.

According to NewScientist, if the user gazes at an object and then presses a key, the object gets selected, which can then be moved from one screen to the other by just a glance at the recipient device, provided they are connected wirelessly.

Developer of the system, Jayson Turner said that the beauty of using gaze to support the system is that human eyes naturally focus on content that it wants to acquire.

Turner said that EyeDrop would be useful to transfer an interactive map or contact information from a public display to a smartphone or for sharing photos.

However, the button to support the eye-object coordination needs to be used appropriately, lest the mouse clicks on anything that the wearer gazes.

The report said that eye-tracking technology is already being explored by Swedish firm Tobii and Google, in its wearable gadget Glass.
