Samsung Galaxy S4 Knows When You Are Looking At It

Of interest to media companies: the phone knows when you are looking at it, so when you are watching a video and turn away for whatever reason, it automatically pauses it for you. It will resume when you look at it again. The feature worked surprisingly well, even with a number of people around me. You can also scroll down and swipe between pages by tilting the phone or hovering your finger just above the screen: helpful if you have hands covered in barbecue sauce.
