Tobii Releases Next Generation Gaming Eye Tracker

Tobii, the global leader in eye tracking, unveiled today its second
generation PC gaming peripheral, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. Requiring a
single USB connection, gamers can own more immersive and natural gaming
experiences without having to upgrade their existing systems or wear
designated head gear. Replacing the current Tobii EyeX gaming
peripheral, the
Tobii
Eye Tracker 4C is available for $149 pre-order at TobiiGaming.com

on October 25, shipping November 25.


STOCKHOLM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$TOBII #eyetracking–Intended to complement, rather than replace, traditional PC gaming
inputs, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C uses gamer’s eye movement to create a
new input modality. Pairing eye tracking with mouse and keyboard or
gamepad controls give gamers a richer, more immersive experience as they
are able to mimic actions that occur in real life, such as looking for
cover or aiming at a target.

Available in over 40 titles at TobiiGaming.com including, Deus Ex:
Mankind Divided
, Tom Clancy’s The Division and Watch Dogs
2 (coming soon)
, several new eye tracking enhanced games are added
monthly. Tobii expects 100 eye tracking enhanced games by the end of
2017, including several more upcoming AAA titles.

Integrating customer feedback from existing Tobii EyeX gamers, Tobii
made five key advancements for the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C:

  • Adding head tracking functionality, making it the only gaming device
    to provide simultaneous head and eye tracking capabilities, providing
    a superior experience in simulator titles like Elite: Dangerous.
    (Currently in Beta)
  • Adding Tobii EyeChip, the world’s first eye tracking ASIC, to reduce
    CPU load and power consumption from the host computer.
  • Decreasing the size and visibility of the illuminators.
  • Moving to an integrated USB2 cord (USB 2.0 BC 1.2) to increase the
    amount of compatible host devices.
  • Further advancing its industry-leading eye tracking quality with
    additional performance enhancements.

Keeping in line with Tobii EyeX, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C will also
support facial recognition for Windows Hello, Microsoft’s password-free
login, allowing gamers to unlock their device with a glance.
