The human eye is a central communication tool in many situations. Within recent years, through eye-tracking technology, this communication means has also found its way into computer-based applications in recent years. Human interactions are further centered around manipulating physical objects. The aim of this work is to design and implement  a physical artifact which reacts to the gaze of a person (by means of eye-tracking) and reacts accordingly (e.g., through haptic feedback, movement, color change, etc.). Based on the implementation of this artifact, different forms of behavior and output mechanisms of gaze aware tangibles will be explored.
