What is Mr. Roboto doing here? Perhaps checking some CEATEC booth girl's ass? Staring at the suspicious character crawling towards him off camera, the one dressed as a giant pink chicken? No, the answer is much cooler than all that:

He's actually controlling an MP3 planer with his eyes.

There's no camera involved here, no optical recognition of any kind. The two earphones inside his ears—developed by NTT DoCoMo—can detect the eye movement using electrodes so sensitive that they can detect how his eyes move—just by being in contact with his head.


I don't know about you, but I think that's quite wicked. I may end up with a huge headache, but it's cool nonetheless. [Pink Tentacle]
