Eye gestures (Hemmert, 2007)

Fabian Hemmert at the Potsdam University of Applied Sciences published his MA thesis in 2007. He put up a site with extensive information and demonstrations of his research in eye gesture such as winks, squints, blinks etc. See the videos or thesis. Good work and great approach!

One example:

"Looking with one eye is a simple action. Seeing the screen with only one eye might therefore be used to switch the view to an alternate perspective on the screen contents: a filter for quick toggling. In this example, closing one eye filters out information on screen to a subset of the original data, such as an overview over the browser page or only the five most recently edited files. It was to see how the users would accept the functionality at the cost of having to close one eye, a not totally natural action." (Source)
