People with disabilities already use the technology, but it has yet to enter the mainstream because of technological and financial constraints.

Neat idea, but if they want to go more widely commercial I think they need a new, intuitive UI. Seemed a little cumbersome, what with the combining of key clicks and eye movements, and it I would imagine eye fatigue becomes an issue pretty quickly. Still, kudos for the development and it will be interesting to see where it goes.

yea if it works well enough it would be awesome for any FPS. I just wander what happens if you go to turn around to talk to someone.

Wow. This is impressive. What I would like to see is the sensor bar made into something like the Wii sensor which you can place on top of your monitor. If the price is right I would definitely consider buying this when it comes out.
