CeBIT 2011 is currently underway in Hanover, Germany, and Tobii has definitely unveiled something special: the "world’s first" eye-controlled laptop.

The mouse can move over as the users' eyes has all the power here. (Although, a mouse or touch pad might be a good back-up system anyway.) The concept notebook, developed in partnership with Lenovo, permits eye control to select, scroll, zoom in on pictures and maps, and auto-center the area one might be focused on.

Somehow, eye control can also be used to toggle between windows as well as manipulate dimming and brightening the display.

If you're lucky enough to be in Germany for CeBIT, the Tobii technology is on display at booth C13, Hall 9. No launch plans have been announced for this advanced PC as it is still just a prototype.
