And not the simple, on-off tracking demonstrated in the latest versions of Samsung's TouchWiz - their hardware can track eye movements with enough precision to replicate a finger tap or mouse cursor.

Android powers most of the worlds smartphones and a sizable number of tablets, but that's just scratching the surface of what our favorite mobile operating system can do. Consider Capture, a game show on CW where contestants utilize Android to capture one another in the real world.

[IFA 2013] Hands-On With The LG G Pad 8.3 (Video)

We're back with another hands-on here at IFA in Berlin, this time LG's upcoming G Pad 8.3.

It didn't work for Android 4.3 users ever since the new version of Android launched in July, but according to the latest changelog, the updated app should be streaming video to everyone now.
