Intel buys 10 percent of eye tracker maker Tobii

Intel has bought a 10 percent stake in Swedish eye-tracking hardware and software maker Tobii, which recently unveiled its second-generation IS-2S eye sensor. The chipmaker paid 143 million kronor (about $21 million) for the shares, Computer Sweden reported. Tobii has plans in place to bring its technology to vehicles and phones in addition to desktop and notebooks.

Intel may keen to cash in on this and integrate the feature into upcoming computers powered by its chips, and Tobii has demonstrated Windows 8 PCs controlled with a user's eyes.

Tobii is largely focused on research and development, and isn't posting profits. It posted a $3.5 million loss in 2010. [via TechCrunch]
