Orbits is a gaze interaction technique that enables hands-free input on smart watches, accounting for the limited display space of these devices. The technique uses moving controls to leverage "smooth pursuit" eye movements, thus detecting which control the user is looking at. Each target performs a distinct function and can be activated by following it with the eyes, allowing for both discrete and continuous control. Because our approach relies on the relative movement of the eyes, no calibration between the eye tracker and the display is necessary.
