100px gives you around 70 zones in your average desktop window. More, when you consider shared hits between zones. That's enough to do basic heat maps of a web site (such as for ad impression tracking), coarse navigation, or integration into things like editors/IDEs.

I was thinking about ad impressions as well; but God forbid websites are ever able to use my camera for eye tracking by bypassing the webcam permissions (or through the removal of in the future? I expect anything when it comes to content monetisation).

Or simply refusing access to the content without access to the camera (thinking of Forbe's ill-conceived content blocking).

I will laugh my ass off if it ever comes to this. Hopefully I never have to come back to this comment and weep.

Stop giving them ideas!

Sticker over camera lens takes care of that - in this age of malware it is good to use it anyhow. Good luck tracking my eyes then!

Other than thwt, I see huge potential for this in UX studies.

Need something like that for microphones in TV/laptops/tablets.
