Gaze-controlled drone

From Alexandre Alapetite and John Paulin Hansen, who I previously did an eye controlled robot with, comes a demo that shows gaze control of a drone. The user´s gaze is determined by an eye tracking apparatus (Alea technology) situated below the display. The drone will fly in the direction that people are looking. The operator is located near the drone. However, he could be situated anywhere, even hundreds of miles away. Gaze Controlled Flying was presented as an interactive demo at the NordiChi 2012 conference, October 16, IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Cool guys!
