Samsung’s Galaxy S IV Will Allow Users To Scroll Pages With Eyeballs

The anticipation around the new Galaxy S IV is steadily building, and smartphone junkies keeping their eyes peeled for announcements surrounding the tightly-guarded Galaxy S IV, have another sneak peek at the phone before the big anouncement next week. According to the New York Times, the S IV will allow users to scroll screens with their eyeballs.

Indeed, Samsung in January filed for a trademark in Europe for the name “Eye Scroll” (No. 011510674). It filed for the “Samsung Eye Scroll” trademark in the United States in February, where it described the service as “Computer application software having a feature of sensing eye movements and scrolling displays of mobile devices, namely, mobile phones, smartphones and tablet computers according to eye movements; digital cameras; mobile telephones; smartphones; tablet computers.”

Tobii, a technology company that received $21 million in funding from Intel last year, has been working on a technique that uses infrared sensors to track precise eye movements.
