Eye Pause and Eye Scroll new trademark names for Samsung’s ‘Nature UI 2.0’

In May last year, Samsung announced the Galaxy SIII with a whole lot of new new features. One of these new features is “Smart Stay”: the front camera detects if you have your eyes open and prevents the screen from turning off. New trademark names confirm that Samsung is working on doing more with the front camera. “Eye Pause” and “Eye Scroll” are new features from Samsung. What that name refers to exactly is still open to interpretation, but it would seem that the front camera looks at your eyes to work out when the text on the page needs to scroll up or down.

Of course, the question is, “When are we going to see this in our smartphones?!”. We don’t know exactly, but we know that Samsung announces a new version of their Touch-Wiz UI every year. These features seem to follow in the flow of the Touch-wiz Nature UI which was launched in conjunction with the Galaxy SIII.Perhaps we will see these new features launched with the Galaxy SIV? What do you think? Would a feature like this be useful?

Nah the best idea would be to use an IR led instead of a flashlight to illuminate the face of the user. The camera should then be able to see in the dark.

@Peter Gratineau: Do not wary about darkened environment. Samsung will put a flash light on the front of the phone to illuminate your eyes so the front camera sees what your eye balls are doing. That is going to poke you straight in the eyes and you will not be able to see the phone, but the phone will be able to see you, and that is all that matters. Off course I am joking. Peter, thank you for your comment. Now we see even better how senseless this innovation is. This feature would not consistently work. Once a user… Read more »

@ sa71. Great point about dual sim on flagship phones but i think the main reason why dual sim phones are not available on high end phone is because carriers do not like this. They would rather customers stick to their network and hence why phones bought from carriers are usually sim locked to prevent customers from using other sim cards. Smartphones are expensive and when bought from carriers they are often subsidised on a monthly plan to help customers buy the phone. Dual sim phones are most often targeted at the lower end market and in developing countries which… Read more »

I think/hope they use it like if you’re reading near the bottom of the page it will automatically scroll it up, like you do when you are near it… And always remember, with these special features, there’s always an option to turn them of. So it won’t use energy or has influence on how you interact with your phone

I understand they need to differentiate themselves from the rest of the crowd by innovations. This one does not seem to be neither natural nor useful to me. Besides, it probably requires a significant amount of hardware resources. To me, even though S Pen is not an innovation, reintroduced known feature, is much more natural and useful. I think every 4.5″ + phone should have a precise stylus pen. Voice to text is very natural too, but, unfortunately, it is limited to a few languages. These are the two features that are really natural. Rolling my eyes left and right,… Read more »

Well they could do an over-the-air gesture. Like close app, zoom in and out, next page. Works well with tablets. You dont need to touch from afar. Example, a choir, a pianist. You just need a better front cam for it. lol. just my idea. 🙂

This is what samsung is famous for… Innovation… Nature UX is really “Designed For Humans” 🙂
