(Eye Control for Devices)
The basic idea behind this technology is to give the computer the human power. We all have some perceptual abilities. That is we can understand each other’s feelings. For example we can understand ones emotional state by analyzing his facial expression. If we add these perceptual abilities of human to computers would enable computers to work together with human beings as intimate partners.However The Eye Tribe software makes it possible to control a mobile device just by looking at it. By combining eye control with existing means of control, like touch, tilt, and key press, The Eye Tribe will change how mobile devices are controlled. The software is unique, because it relies only on standard low-cost components that are easily integrated into next generation smartphones and tablets.
The Eye Tribe vision is to become the leading software provider for eye control to mass market applications. The Eye Tribe was founded in 2011 by 4 former PhD students from the IT University of Copenhagen. Since then our team has been strengthened by two software Developers, two Business Developers, a Hardware Engineer and a strong advisory board. When Apple introduced touch control for iPhone in 2007 it fundamentally changed the mobile market. Currently voice control is making headlines with Siri in the iPhone 4S, but the next big thing is eye control according to a top-5 mobile manufacturer. The Eye Tribe intends to license the software to one or more of the major manu-facturers of smart phones and tablets. By addressing the more than US$ 250 Billion mobile device market with estimated 1.1 Billion devices sold in 2015.
The idea was first presented at Startup Weekend Mobile in Copenhagen in June 2011, where the The Eye Tribe won the award for Best Demo. Since then The Eye Tribe has received several awards, including most disruptive tech- nology award at Rice Business
Plan Competition, ABB Global Innovation 2011, best show- case at ICT championship at Idea2Product Global, Winner of Venture Cup, Winner of IBM Global Entrepreneur Copenhagen, Best company in Accelerace 2012 and winner of the eHealth Innovation Contest 2012. The Eye Tribe has raised US$ 800K in initial seed funding. The Eye Tribe is looking to raise further US$ 1 Million to bring the technology to market together with a major mobile manufacturer.
