Google may allow for users of Glass
to use their eyes to control the headset. A user by the name of fodawim on Reddit found
eye options hidden in the code of the companion app for Android, specifically functions for winking. Of the five, two related to wink calibration, two turned the function on and off, and one last seems to allow a wink to trigger a photo from its 5-megapixel camera. Other eye-related controls have yet to be found, though the company has patented
a number of different control systems that could potentially be used with Glass.
