In Tobii's updated version of Asteroids, the Earth itself is the player's avatar, as opposed to a simple triangular ship
Eye-tracking and eye control specialist Tobii has given Atari's classic Asteroids arcade game a modern make-over, with players using only their eyes to aim and shoot at flying rocks to save the world from being smashed to pieces
Tobii EyeAsteroids - the world's first eye-controlled arcade game

When I was a good bit younger, I wasted far too much of my spare time blowing up wave after wave of space rocks - and the occasional flying saucer - trying to get to the flip-over. Atari's most successful game, Asteroids, has now been given a futuristic make-over by eye-tracking and eye control specialist Tobii, developers of the impressive laptop prototype and the stand-alone PCEye system for Windows PCs. Built as a free-standing arcade game, EyeAsteroids players use only their eyes to aim and fire a laser at flying rocks and save the world from impending pulverization.
