Scientists have unveiled a car that can be steered with the driver's eyes.

Raul Rojas, an artificial intelligence researcher at Berlin's Free University, said the technology tracks a driver's eye movement and, in turn, steers the car in whatever direction they are looking.

The technology-packed prototype was revealed at an abandoned airport in the German capital.

The Dodge Caravan criss-crossed the tarmac at Tempelhof Airport, its driver using his line of sight to control the car.

The car's steering wheel turned as if guided by ghostly hands.
