How far away will the "subject" be from the camera? – viking Jun 16 '11 at 19:16
one meter or less maybe – zforx Jun 16 '11 at 19:19

It seems unlikely, but I don't know from experience. I would expect that the resolution necessary to track eye movements would be greater than the resolution necessary to track hand rotation. It might be possible with heavy processing of the two images, but this will probably reduce the ability to do tracking in real-time. The kinect camera's resolutions are relatively low (640x480 at 30Hz)

i think that would be easier to use a webcam for this purpose right? – zforx Jun 16 '11 at 19:32
I think you are looking for something pretty high resolution at a high frame rate. There are a few webcams that are probably up to the task. – viking Jun 16 '11 at 19:34
