EyeSeeCam Tracks Your Gaze to Capture What You See

Imagine the possibilities of this technology if it were made compact and ultra-portable. In a few years we might be beaming our personal memories to some data storage service for future reference.

Can you think of any interesting or useful applications of this technology if it were made more practical?
