The IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California is developing advanced haman-interface computing devices, including:

- A Terminator-style camera with gaze-tracking technology to identify the face and display the name of the person on a sunglasses-mounted display. It could also perform automated language translation of viewed text.

- An electronic communal bulletin board that gives everyone whose personal information is in a database access to their desktop computer applications simply by looking at the screen.

- A way to input data into a personal computer or handheld device with your eyes.
