Future Windows 10 will come with eye tracking support

The new color scheme will only be visible in Properties if you do a clean install of the build. The new feature allows users to incorporate any 3D object from your PC or the Remix 3D catalog into Word, PowerPoint or Excel. Windows' on-screen keyboard then generates predictive matches.

On Wednesday, Microsoft released a beta version of 'Eye Control' feature in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16257 and Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 15237 to Insiders in the Fast ring that allows users to interact with their devices through eye movements.

The move will enable people with limited or no ability to move their arms a chance to more easily use Windows 10. That is, they'll only need their eyes to take control of the situation, which is really great.

Microsoft's integral eye tracking feature is taking another turn today. Currently, the Eye Control feature only supports US English keyboard layout.

To use the feature, now in the beta testing stage and available for select users signed up for Microsoft's Windows Insider program, people need to utilize eye tracking hardware by Tobii, a Swedish company.

In addition to fixing various issues, Microsoft Edge has also received a "refreshed and more modern look in the browser frame" inspired by the Fluent Design System.

Eye Control is still in beta, but it's been developed over a three-year period since the 2014 One Week hackathon, when former National Football League player Steve Gleason, affected with ALS, challenged Microsoft's creative team to create a useful product that could be used by ALS sufferers.

A misleading public statement could be used as evidence of corrupt intent, Sklansky said. Sekulow did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The issue where the Japanese IME prediction candidates shifted position and overlapped with the text on the screen when the page zoom level is set to anything other than 100 percent, has been fixed too. There are also some included fixes for closing tabs when in full screen mode, copying images and tab ordering.

If the skip ahead option was open to all, Microsoft may lose more Insiders to the Redstone 4 builds than needed at this time. Check out more details about these changes here.

Microsoft announced new Windows 10 computers will include eye tracking software and they will be available sometime next year.

Input: Talking about the input improvements, the bugs in Japanese keyboard and dictation is now resolved while the touch keyboard now starts immediately from the taskbar. Easier modification of URLs and other minor bug fixes were also provided.

Background preparation of the WDAG container has been optimised to improve its launch time.

But the company is planning to add more layouts on the future. How about a Drone? During this year's hackathon, we asked our employees, "Who will you empower?"
