Another possible application could be design security systems based on the recognition of eye movements.

Interesting. I think Microsoft will move to partner with these guys. This is what the next Xbox was dreaming to do and Bill Gates promised for ages.

Interesting. But is the eye movement pattern unique for human? Or you are referring to some 'unlock' pattern like on android devices ?

Perhaps use eye movement to indicate a password without having to press buttons...

I rather think this has niche applications e.g. accessibility for disabled people.

Great example of how technology helps us in overcoming the disabilities. This would be stressful to eyes otherwise, isn't it?

Why are the light circles needed? just for training the users? This is very interesting. I think this can become an app for mobile phones and become a new way of controlling or a new form of HMI. At least if not controlling, if the computing device is aware of where the user's eye is looking at, perhaps the interaction can further be speed up and made more agile. This is something that can become widespread.

Eye-gazing technology has been around for some time in various labs but failed to break into the mainstream. I believe niche applications are where we will see this technology deployed. It's simply not practical for wider use.

This is especially elegant because it enables direct communication to another person. How does the "writer" indicate end of word breaks? Is it a rapid blink of the eye or some darting glance away? I suppose a similar approach could be used on a virtual keyboard to look at and trigger the individual keys.

I find one more application for this technology. The TRPs can now be very accurately measured for the TV programs and commercials.
