In its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, Samsung has added a bunch of eye-tracking features, one of which is “Smart Pause,” a feature that Pauses a video when you look away from the screen, and resumes when you look back. A free iOS app called LookAway Player brings the same feature to iOS devices.
The app is a simply YouTube player, but the major highlight is obviously its “vision control capabilities,” which not only includes Smart Pause but also a “shush” gesture to mute the video:
LookAway Player is a standard YouTube player that is powered by Cube26’s vision control capabilities. Two features currently included in the Lookaway Player are Lookaway to pause video midstream and “Shush”(finger to lips) to mute/unmute volume.
Try the app and tell us know what you think about the app. Gimmicky or Useful?
