The $5 Billion Eye and Gesture Tracking Sensor Market

Eye Tracking and Gesture Tracking Sensors

$5 Billion is a huge number for the eye and gesture tracking sensor market. It’s amazing how these markets slowly creep up until they become something huge. There are a number of really interesting startups that are working on eye and gesture tracking sensors.

This news is particularly interesting as Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note 7 will include iris scanning. It will help secure the device, but will also be available in other apps in the phone so that you have a true single sign on with your iris. We’ll see if they open it up for eye tracking applications as well.

As you look at the development curves of these technologies, we’re still in the very early stages. That’s what gets me most excited. The eye is indeed a window into our health in many ways. I can’t wait to see the new health innovations that come from it. At $5 billion, that market is really starting to mature.
