Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

typing -- with your eyes


This article reports on another article on this week's Nature magazine about Dasher, software that predicts which letter is most likely to come next in a piece of text, and an eye-tracking interface to the software that lets people type up to 25 words per minute using the software. Best of all, Dasher is language independent and it adapts to the user's habits (vocabulary, writing style) over time.

Tons of applications come to mind, but the most intriguing of all would be its integration into a PDA or a cellphone. Maybe it will be a way of getting rid of the "palm alphabet" once and for all.
