According to reports from around the web, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S4 will include a new “eye scrolling” feature that track the user’s eye to determine where to focus and when to scroll on the page:

 

“The phone will track a user’s eyes to determine where to scroll, said a Samsung employee who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media. For example, when users read articles and their eyes reach the bottom of the page, the software will automatically scroll down to reveal the next paragraphs of text.”

 

As noted in the report, Samsung actually filed for a trademark in Europe for “Eye Scroll” back in January and again in the United States for “Samsung Eye Scroll” in February. Apple and other companies have filed patents for similar technology that tracks the movement of a user’s eyes to zoom, scroll, and manipulate the elements on a display without physically touching it.
