Animated gifs + eye-tracking = a sense of unease
  [vote for,

Animated gifs in web pages which only animate if a webcam is plugged in, and only if they detect that no-one is looking directly at them.

       Truly excellent +   

       How about other animations that do rude things when no one is looking?

       This is... brilliant.   

       One problem: can a web browser access your webcam?
MaxwellBuchanan, Jul 16 2014

       [MaxwellBuchanan], almost certainly. But not directly; you would have to plug in something like Java or ActiveX, applications that can link a browser to everything in a computer system that the browser's built-in security model forbids accessing. That's why Java and ActiveX are associated with security risks, of course!

       This might startle me. Yay. +
