Building LEGO sets with your hands could soon be a thing of the past if software showcased at this this year's Consumer Electronics Show is anything to go by.

Eye-tracking software developer The Eye Tribe showed off an interface that allows users to build LEGO sets using just their eyes at this year's show, reports International Business Times.

The software has previously been used to control mobile devices, computers, gaming consoles and TVs, and now The Eye Tribe is working with the LEGO Group to develop a learning tool that provides users with a new way to build LEGO sets.

"We're extremely excited to be back at CES and to show how quickly we've advanced our products for mobile form factors," said Sune Alstrup Johansen, CEO of The Eye Tribe.

"With our solution, OEMs can fast-track integration of real eye tracking. We want to bust the myth that it is an expensive and complicated affair."

Martin Tall, chief technology officer of The Eye Tribe, added: "Our vision is to transition eye tracking from being an expensive lab equipment into every day products. Soon this technology will be integrated into a wide range of devices such as tablets and smartphones.

"It will enable you to interact with devices in ways that you only dreamed were possible. Devices will behave more intuitively, games will become more immersive."

Microsoft Windows and Android are the only platforms that support The Eye Tribe's technology currently.
