Two Worlds II: Castle Defense adds Eyetracking technology

In readying the iPad 2 version of Two Worlds II: Castle Defense (released on PC, Mac, iPhone, and iPad back in May), TopWare has added a really cool new feature.

This technology probably won't be used much in the future because the iPad 2's gyroscope can probably do the effect easier, but I still think it's a neat way of using a camera. You can check out the effect for free by downloading the Lite version of the game, or you can drop money on the full version.
