Apple files multi-touch gaze/touch patent

A patent filing by Apple shows some sort of strange gaze/touch combination designed to add voice and gaze detection to a standard UI. This looks like it works best for media interaction – you can touch both ends of a photo, for example, and expand and contract the image as needed. You can then pick another one with your eyes and then change the image, add text, or modify colors just by speaking. Will it be hitting the next Macbook iteration next week? Probably not, I’m sad to say, but at least we know Apple is thinking about ways for adding text to our pornographic images.
