Midas Touch Problem in Eye Tracking

This is an interesting metaphor in the eye tracking literature.

King Midas is able to turn everything he touches into gold. It does not actually work out, since he cannot use his hands as normal hands, to do those daily simple tasks.

When eye gaze is used an interaction media interfacing with computer systems, the basic function of eye, to look and to perceive visual information, should be distinguished from those deliberate interaction with the computer systems. Otherwise, it becomes Midas Touch.
