Thanks Sheri! Seems to be some pretty ignorant comments in that article (what a surprise!). It's also far from new news on making eye-trackers work for cheap money. What would be big news is if the cheap eye-tracker can cope with head-movements and people who don't like to wear a head-set.

Here's some more on eye-trackers for games:

http://www.gamebase.info/magazine/category/18531 - SpecialEffect's growing list of Eye Tracker compatible games in their Accessible GameBase.
http://www.gamebase.info/videos.html - SpecialEffect videos - including FIFA and a 3D car race game adapted for eye tracker play.
http://switchgaming.blogspot.com/search/label/eye%20trackers My blog's list of bits and bobs on Eye Tracker games (loads in there including House of the Dead, an adapted Nintendo Wii if a bit limited and more).

"Engineering students in London have developed a controller that enables eye-controlled movements in a video game, signaling the possibility someday for people with severe physical disabilities to enjoy video games for the first time."
