Millions of people suffering from Multiple Scleorosis, Parkinson's, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injuries or amputees could soon interact with their computers and surroundings using just their eyes thanks to a new device that costs just £43.
Comprised of off-the-shelf materials, the new device, can work out exactly where a person is looking by tracking their eye movements, allowing them to control a cursor on a screen just like a normal computer mouse.
The researchers demonstrated the device by getting students to play the computer game Pong using just their eyes.
