Text 2.0 gaze assisted reading

From the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence comes a new demonstration of a gaze based reading system, Text 2.0, which utilizes eye tracking for making the reading experience more dynamic and interactive. For example the system can display images relevant to what your reading about or filter out less relevant information if your skimming through the content. The research is funded through the Stiftung Rheinland-Pfalz für Innovation. On the groups website you can also find an interesting project called PEEP which allows developers to connect eye trackers to Processing which enables aesthetically stunning visualizations. This platform is the core of the Text2.0 platform. Check out the videos.
