Motion control might not be great for precise gaming, but that doesn't mean that everything you do needs to be controlled by your hands. SteelSeries just announced its new eye-tracking Sentry, that watches where you're looking to help you get better at games.
Tobii's eye-tracking tech could be what frees us from keyboards and mice, but what if your eyeballs could replace your remote control, too? Haier, of all companies, is trying to make it happen. It's almost superhuman.
For better or worse, CES Unveiled is a thing. We actually find it terribly convenient—dozens of gadgetmakers under one roof. And we found some cool stuff too. Huzzah! We braved the throngs and fried-food-vapors for you, my dears. Here's the best stuff we saw:

Touching a screen is so tiring. I don't want to move my hands: there must be an easier way to launch Angry Birds. Can't I just look at an app to launch it? Wait, I can? Wow.
Instead of flailing your arms and legs, or wielding a motion sensing controller, Tobii Technology thinks gaming would be a bit more civilized and effective if players used their eyes. The company specializes in eye tracking and control systems, and created the Eye Asteroids arcade game as a way to show how its…
