ABC News(LAS VEGAS) — A company named Tobii has figured out a way to use your eyes as the navigation tool on computers.

At CES 2013 in Las Vegas, the company announced the Rex, a computer accessory about the length of a straw that attaches to any computer display.  It then brings eye-tracking to that computer, allowing you to open a document by just looking at it or scroll down the page just by looking down.

Tobii’s technology is groundbreaking, but not new.  The company has been showing this functionality off for a while.

But this time around, the company has the Rex, the add-on it is selling to software developers so they can start to build software that works with the hardware. 

The Rex will cost $995, but Tobii says it will be available for consumers for a more digestible price before the end of the year.  Then, the goal for the company is to get it built directly into laptops or desktops.
