Submitted by on October 17, 2012 – 11:09 am3 Comments

Do you love to watch TV? Do you get annoyed when you have to pause your TV every time you get up to go to the bathroom or run into the kitchen for a quick snack? Do you wish there was someway to make it even easier to watch TV? Then, boy, do we have a treat for you! It’s called PredictGaze, and it is officially the best invention since the remote control for all of you out there who can’t get enough of your couch.

Essentially, PredictGaze allows you to turn your body into the remote control for your TV. Let’s say you’re watching a great movie when, all of a sudden, your two-year-old starts wailing in the other room. You get up and quickly run out of the room, but you obviously don’t have enough time to fetch the remote, press pause, and save your place. Before, that meant you had to cover your ears so that you didn’t hear what was happening in the other room. And then, when you reemerged, you had to sit down, press rewind, figure out exactly where you left off, and risk seeing something that you missed. What a pain! But, with PredictGaze, your TV will automatically pause as soon as you leave the room, so that you can restart it from right where you left when you return. Pretty cool, huh?

So, how does PredictGaze work? Well, it uses a small, inexpensive webcam to monitor how many people are in front of the TV at any given time. And, when one disappears, it pauses the TV. In the near future, PredictGaze will also be able to monitor how old the people are in the room as well and block any inappropriate material from airing on the TV if, say, kids are present. PredictGaze is also going to be available for the Apple iPad soon, too, and it will help protect your personal information by keeping an eye on who is using your tablet.

Overall, PredictGaze seems like it’ll be a pretty cool product. Does it make Americans seem a little lazy? No. It makes them seem very lazy. Ha. But, hey: That’s nothing new, right? We’re all about finding new products that make life more convenient. And, PredictGaze is definitely one of those products. Look for the technology to become available very soon.
