Digitalization is not Detriment- Believe Us
Google has just released an beta application on it’s android phones called ‘Google Look’ that enables you literally control your device interaction with your eyes. How it works is that there would be words or phrases that were already preselected.
When using the app, users only have to look from left to right and will make use of the phone’s front facing camera. While the feature was created for those with speech and motor disability it could possibly be integrated into everyday user modes. The phone would also have to be firmly mounted and is supported on android 9+ phones and Android One. The feature is part of the Google experiments Start One Project.
Google Experiments are mainly focused on creating something bigger and larger for communities and the globe at large.
