Posted by Venkatesh on October 26th 2016

Eyefluence, an eye-tracking interface startup founded in 2013 has been acquired by Google reccently.  Eyefluence enable users wearing head-mounted virtual reality or augmented glasses to use their eyes as a mouse and making selections only with their eye movements. Eye-tracking has other more technical use cases like foveae rendering which allows high-density displays to selectively choose areas of the screen to display images at lower-resolution based on where you’re focus actually is on the display.
 
This acquisition comes in sync with Google's VR plans for a new headset are advancing & it has been actively assigning individuals to work on a high-end standalone headset that doesn't require a computer or Smartphone. Google's device will integrate eye tracking and use sensors and algorithms to map out the real-world space in front of a user.
