To promote the new Galaxy S4 with its cool ‘smart pause’ technology, Samsung challenged commuters to a ‘stare down’ with the new mobile phone.

The ‘smart pause’ feature in the new S4 phone uses eye-tracking technology to track when someone looks at the screen and when he or she looks away.

Those who could maintain eye contact for 60 minutes won a free Galaxy S4.
