LG Smart Video Feature Uses Eye Tracking to Control Movie Playback

  • We’ve been hearing over the past week that Samsung has come up with an eye scrolling system that will debut on the Galaxy S IV. The idea goes something like this: your eyes are tracked and once you reach the bottom of the page you’re reading, if you eyes move to the bottom, the page scrolls down. Well, now LG has come up with something similar…


    LG unveiled a new solution dubbed Smart Video, that will soon hit the Optimus G Pro. It automatically pauses playback of a movie if the phone detects your eyes have looked away from the screen. Once your eyes return to the displayed content, the video resumes where you left off. LG considers this a way to get rid of the traditional play and pause buttons, although you still need to touch the screen to move around clips.

    We don’t have a lot of details about this new system, but we know that the LG Optimus G Pro’s front camera is able to identify the position of your eyes. The concept of monitoring a user’s focus isn’t totally new, since Samsung pulled that on the Galaxy S III with the Smart Stay.
