A rapid development of eye tracking technology has been observed in recent years. Today's eye trackers can determine the current focus point of the eye precisely while being relatively unobtrusive in their application. Also, a variety of research and commercial groups has been working on this technology, and there is a growing interest for such devices on the market. Eye tracking has great potential and it can be assumed that it will advance further and might become a widespread technology used at a large number of personal or office computer workplaces. Approaches using simple web- cams for eye tracking already exist, for example web- cams integrated into laptop computers by default. Thus, they allow for new kinds of applications using eye gaze data.
