Google has purchased Eyefluence, a startup company that specializes in eye-tracking technology,
Google plans to fold Eyefluence's unique eye-tracking VR optics software tech into its new mobile-powered Daydream View VR headset. The software uses "vision-driven, intuitive eye-interaction" to discern quite a bit of information from users, chiefly whether or not HMD wearers are interested in what they're seeing or not. We're not 100% sure how Google will leverage Eyefluence to build a new optics solution for Daydream VR, but we could see some interesting convergences happen, including eye-controlled interfaces
"At Eyefluence, we are engineering the ability to transform intent into action through your eyes. Leveraging eye biomechanics and the eye-brain connection with the first-ever eye-interaction technology solution for HMD devices, we are expanding human potential and creating new possibilities in VR, AR, and MR worlds," reads the company's website.
