Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature eye scrolling, reports NYT

full_public_s4_invite_be_readyThe upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 will feature a new eye scrolling technology, reports someone (Samsung employee) who claims to have used the device. A New York Times article today details the rumored feature and points to recent filings which seem to substantiate the claim.

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. – NYT

The Samsung Galaxy S III featured rather intuitive and clever technologies not built into the Android framework, including Smart Stay. We posited that Samsung might employ smarter features for the soon-to-be-announced phone in our What We Expect: Samsung Galaxy S4.

    I can’t say that I would really use the eye-scrolling feature, but there are plenty of others that I would, such as the better quality camera as well as the 1080p display. Considering the fact that I like streaming my live and recorded shows on my phone during the commute to and from work at DISH, I’d quite like a high definition display. I’ve got the DISH Anywhere app on my current Galaxy, which lets me stream my live shows anywhere I go, and I think it’d be nice to watch on a full HD display.

    I’m a pretty cynical/sarcastic person so what will it do every time I roll my eyes? :-p
