The Tobii Eye Tracker 4C is a PC peripheral device which uses an elaborate arrangement of cameras and infrared lights to precisely follow your eye and head movements and locate the exact position of your gaze on the monitor screen. It is small, bar-shaped and is being marketed as a gaming periphery, while also being of use to add eye tracking to streams and videos so as to engage your audience and improve the content of your graphics (but you will need the Tobii Ghost software to avail this feature). It can also be used to display a graphic representation of where you are looking in videos on Twitch or YouTube using the Tobii Streaming Gaze app.
The Tobii Eye Tracker is currently one of the most advanced and futuristic peripherals in gaming. With an almost frightening accuracy, it is the only PC peripheral with simultaneous eye and head tracking. It comes with a trademark Tobii EyeChip ASIC which gives you the world’s most advanced eye tracking while reducing CPU and power consumption from your device. However, the Tobii Eye Tracker comes with a steep price tag of $169, which is not surprising considering how new and ground-breaking the technology is.
The device is easy to set up through a simple USB port. It has native support in Windows 10. Tobii is working with video gaming publishers like Ubisoft and some other indie gaming developers to integrate eye tracking into their games. The company is also working on incorporating the technology into laptops and other items; in fact, laptop manufacturers have already begun building the Tobii eye-tracking technology into their systems.
This rapid expansion and integration of the Tobii Eye Tracker technology give us a fair indication of how eye tracking can start appearing in our other tech items – smartphones, smartwatches, etc. – in a matter of years. Such an expansion could revolutionise the way we use technology, operate websites and mobile apps and consume content.
