It is basically taking the common eye-tracking technology and combining it with a front-facing camera along with some serious computer-vision algorithm and you can slice the fruits with your eyes!
The multi-touch desktop is a miserable f product due to the reason that hands get very tired with the long use, but Leap Motion is challenging this concept with a more advanced idea. This idea will let you control the desktop with fingers but without touching the screen.

iOS and Android are great, but they are having their own rules and policies that hold the creative efforts of developers. Now, Mozilla has decided to build a new mobile operating system from scratch. It is named as Firefox OS.

The data source is still a secret recipe. For your information, the Google driverless car will be powered by artificial intelligence that utilizes the input from the video cameras present inside the car, along with the sensor on the vehicle’s top, some radar, and position sensors attached to the different positions of the car. This seems like an effort to mimic the human intelligence in a car. When this technology was tested 1609 kilometers were covered without human commands!
