Is there a non-interaction mode too? Like, when they want to just stand there and talk and not immediately go everywhere they look? And how do they learn the menus when everything is clicked right when they look at it?

This technology would be awesome for people with parkisans too.

@Alexander: I'm sure the folk who use these technologies can work out those simple problems. Eye tracking technology can be combined with buttons and other transducers for with severe but not complete immobility. Breathing tubes have been used by folk with almost complete immobility to enable (slow) mouse like movement for a long time, and it is rare to find a single enabling technology used alone. Computer use assistive technologies for the severely disabled tend to be tailored to the individual. Eye tracking is one of those technologies which, for the people it can help, is revolutionary.
