Well yes, that’s exactly the case with the tablet PC that the French manufacturer Evigroup has come up with.
Basically, the Paddle Pro tablet is like any other that you come across. It runs the Windows operating system and includes a front facing camera among many other things. However, the difference here lies in the way the webcam at the front operates. For it can be used to track the movement of your head. Or to put it in simple terms, the camera can pin point the exact location on the screen that you are looking at at that particular moment and will point that out with a small circle. Move your gaze and the circle too will be seen moving tracking the movement. Now that does not mean it only responds to movement of the head for as soon as you approach the tablet with your fingers, the circle disappears to show it is now ready to receive finger inputs. But then, yours fingers are not always necessary. As the video points out, one can accomplish simple tasks such as opening and closing programs or other simple tasks just by your head and without requiring a single touch of the finger. Now that’s amazing.
So if you think you are done with device that require finger presses to get going, how about bringing your head into the thick of things?
