Microsoft testing 'Eye Control' feature for Windows 10


The first Tobii device to support Eye Control in Windows 10 is the Eye Tracker 4C, while other existing devices like the Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEye Plus, EyeMobile Plus and I-series will be supported soon, according to The Verge.

We've seen eye-tracking technology make PC gaming more immersive, and now Microsoft is building it right into Windows itself, so you can navigate and type with just your eyes.

The current preview build is the ninth of the upcoming Windows Fall Creators Update that is expected to make the touchdown in September.

Microsoft says Eye Control only supports the US English on-screen keyboard for now, although it's clear the US company is moving quickly with this feature.

Eye Tracking is now in beta testing with Windows Insiders on Build 16257 or higher but to enable it you must have compatible hardware.

Edge has received a more modern look in the browser frame, inspired by Microsoft's Fluent Design System. The new feature allows users to incorporate any 3D object from your PC or the Remix 3D catalog into Word, PowerPoint or Excel. If you want to learn more about Microsoft's thinking behind the changes, head over to the Command Line blog.

So, a team of employees made a decision to take on the challenge and during a company hackathon built a tool called Eye Gaze Wheelchair, which allowed Gleason to drive his wheelchair with only the movement of his eyes as he looked at controls on a Surface tablet.

The issue where the Japanese IME prediction candidates shifted position and overlapped with the text on the screen when the page zoom level is set to anything other than 100 percent, has been fixed too.

Note: The Tobii 4C Eye has magnetic attach points on the back of the device.

We all know that Microsoft is bringing out a fresh, new update for the users in Windows 10. Some colors in the console were designed for PC screens 20 years ago. If you select this option going forward, you will have your Windows Insider Program settings reverted.

Windows Defender has also been updated with performance improvements targeting container launch times.
