We present BlinkBot - a hands free input interface to control and command a robot. BlinkBot explores the natural modality of gaze and blink to direct a robot to move an object from a location to another. A laser on a wearable controller tells where the user is looking, and a ceiling camera detects the laser. A photoreflector on the controller detects intentional blinks, while the sensor does not respond to natural blinks.
