Product: Television: On or Off Switch
Automatic Pause Control   (+1, -2)  [vote for, against]
Television peripheral detects eye movement and controls the pause feature for the TV's active console when nobody is watching or begins to watch..

Of course, there would be a five or ten second lag time, this way you can continue to dart your eyes around for objects and whatnots whilest you watch TV.

Clockwork Orange
You *will* watch the advertisements! [Jinbish, Apr 28 2010]

Great, a needy TV that gets petulant if you don't give it your full attention ;}
Good, though, for some security, scientific, or medical applications where you want to make sure *everything* is reviewed by the human monitor.
