Predict Gaze is a gesture-based software that allows users to control their devices hands-free.

Predict Gaze is a Santa Clara, Californian startup that will change the way users interact with their mobile device, computer, and TV. The software uses the device’s front-facing camera and can recognize different gestures such as eye movements, facial expressions, and even the user’s gender. A user browsing on an iPad or computer can simply scroll with their eyes by looking up or down, without the need to use their hands.

Users can also mute the sound on their device by making the “Shhh” gesture. Another feature of Predict Gaze is that a TV can automatically pause a DVD when it detects that no one is watching it. For example, you might get up to make yourself a cup of tea, and the TV will automatically resume where you left off when you sit down again.

Watch the demos below to see how Predict Gaze works.
