Samsung has introduced the second generation of its EYECAN+ computer mouse. This mouse allows people with physical disabilities to control the device with eye movements, rather than their hands and arms.

The latest EYECAN+ mouse allows users to compose and edit documents as well as explore the Internet using a browser, but does not require the use of additional components, such as special eyeglasses, to operate.

The device is a portable box that sits below a computer's monitor and is wirelessly calibrated to the user's eye, according to Samsung.

The most recent version of the Top500 list, a roster of the world's fastest supercomputers, was released during the SC14 supercomputing show Nov. 16-21 in New Orleans. Along with this, the Green500, a list of the world's most efficient systems was also released.

The Asus L-CSC supercomputer ascended to the top of the list, with a power efficiency of 5.27 gigaflops per watt. The system was built by Asus using processors and other components from Intel and Advanced Micro Devices.

For the first time, astronauts on the International Space Station used a 3D printer to manufacture a part in zero gravity while orbiting the Earth. This proves that 3D printing is viable in space, adding flexibility for future missions that might require spare parts that no one had brought from Earth.

This may also allow NASA to reduce the weight onboard, since a single 3D printer could be brought along rather than multiple extra parts.

While it's not yet commercially available, Qualcomm officials are eager to get the company's upcoming 64-bit ARM-based Snapdragon 810 Ultra HD processor into the hands of device and software makers.

Qualcomm is rolling out early development platforms for the system-on-a-chip in the form of a 6.2-inch smartphone and a 10.1-inch tablet.

Hardware and software makers will be able to leverage the devices to help them develop, test and optimize their device designs and Android applications before putting their commercial products on store shelves
