    Swiping and moving around the working interface can be very well managed using this new interface. But the support of touch pad or a mouse is still a requirement to make up for certain unimplemented gestures at present.

    This newly designed eye tracking system works in tandem with eye positioning as well as the Microsoft touch language for controlling the device in action. There is no such positive sign concerning the mass production of Tobii REX as of now.

    About 5,000 test units are all set to be released by the end of the year. Developers who are looking forward to access this interesting device would have to pay a handsome price of up to $995(Rs.53800/- approx). The consumer edition of the product is expected to arrive with a more affordable price tag.
