Orbits: enabling gaze interaction in smart watches using moving targets

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paper



In this paper we demonstrate Orbits, a novel gaze interaction technique that accounts for both the reduced size of smart watch displays and the hands-free nature of conventional watches. Orbits combines graphical controls that display one or multiple targets moving on a circular path, with input that is provided by users as they follow any of the targets briefly with their eyes. This gaze input triggers the functionality associated with the followed target -- be it answering a call, playing a song or managing multiple notifications.
