Apple buys eye tracking hardware company SenoMotoric

Apple has quietly bought SensoMotoric Instruments, a German maker of eye-tracking glasses.

Founded in 1991, SMI does work in mobile eye tracking as well as for augmented and virtual reality, according to its website.

Adds some weight to the rumours swelling around Apple creating future hardware to capitalise on their new augmented reality framework now embedded within iOS.

Can Apple create something that doesn’t end up akin to Google’s “glass-holes” debacle? Or will we see the tech incorporated into existing product lines such as the iPhone?
