Accessibility: A South Korean eBook Service Launches New Feature to Turn Pages: Eye Tracking

From Korea Bizwire:

Millie’s Library, a South Korean e-book service provider, introduced Wednesday a new feature that tracks the eyes of the reader to enable the user to read an e-book without using both hands.

The new feature uses the device’s front camera to track the eyes of the reader, automatically turning the page when the reader finishes reading each page. Each page is turned simply by looking at the automatic turn button.
