Glasses Let You Fly a Drone with Your Eyes

The days of controlling a drone using a remote controller are numbered. Scientists have been working on a variety of ways to fly drones, but the latest could be the most interesting of all. Using eye-tracking glasses, pilots may soon be able to control drone movements by merely moving their eyes.

The Tobii Pro Glasses 2 have been targeted toward other applications, including learning more about how humans look at specific objects for testing purposes. But a team of engineers from New York University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory saw its potential when it comes to drones. The team has found a way to use the eye-tracking technology to maneuver the popular tech toys.

The benefits of natural light are such that humans generally like enjoying as much of it as they can without getting overexposed or burned.

For those whose access to sunlight is limited or possibly even prevented, there's now a device that is said to have the ability to reproduce the warmth and light of the sun in any space.

CoeLux, a tech startup based in Italy, has come up with an optical system that can copy the color and warmth of sunlight as well as the movement of the sun throughout the day.

When new technology is introduced, the vast majority of consumers seem inclined to dismiss it. "That'll never take off," people say, waving away enthusiasts' attempts to champion it. Some of the most revolutionary ideas were initially seen as silly by consumers.

Google Glass seems to be facing a similar fate. Instead of embracing the many potential uses for wearable technology, naysayers have honed in on its potential abuses, using fear as a reason not to consider giving it a try. Wearers of the device have been given nicknames like "glassholes" and one woman was even ticketed for wearing a pair while driving.
