No, that's not a picture of Johnny 5's head you're looking at, but the SmartRetina, a computer interface that tracks your movements to interact with a PC. With the SmartRetina hooked up to a PC, you can navigate the complex environs of your PC's GUI without so much as touching a mouse. It's supposed to bridge the language and age gap since anyone can point to an object while sitting in a chair.

The SmartRetina's designers, Yaniv Steiner and Ofer Luft, have a video of the SmartRetina on their Web site showing a well-dressed user circumnavigating the globe using GoogleEarth. Should this protype go into production, we'll let you know.
