Microsoft is planning to introduce provision for eye-control in a new update on Windows 10. Eye control is the system most famously used by Stephen Hawking to work his Lenovo Yoga tablet with nothing more than a custom-built eye-movement tracker.

Now Microsoft says it is making computer eye control a reality for everyone.

Eye control for Windows 10 is said to provide similar functionality to the Hawking device, including the ability to spell out words using predictive text, text to speech and control of Windows.

The system will require a third-party device such as the US$149 Tobii Eye Tracker 4C, available from Amazon and other resellers.

Observers note that eye control is not completely new. Samsung smartphones use eye tracking to perform functions such as controlling the play of a video: if the user looks away from the phone’s screen, it stops the playback.
