Eye controlled Ultra HD TVs
The next generation of TVs will be eye and brainwave controlled.
The eyes have it.
If you weren’t sure if you were living in the future then the next-generation of Ultra HD TVs should finally convince you.
Chinese brand Haier was showing off what it thinks is the next-big-thing for TVs: eye and brainwave control. You read that right, we can now control TVs with just a thought.
These aren’t ideas or whimsy, but working TVs shown at IFA 2012. The eye controlled system after calibration works incredibly adeptly, to the point that you can control a Windows 7 desktop. The thought control aspect is similar to existing products that use a headset and enable simple on/off style controls.
Haier also demonstrated an entirely wire-free TV that was powered by magnetic resonance, plus it had the obligatory 4k sets pumping out quad-1080p resolutions. Currently none of these products has been slated for UK release, but we expect with all this development behind it that eye control will appear soon.
