WHAT IS EYE TRACKING IN GAMING?

An eye tracker gives your computer the knowledge of where you are looking on-screen. Eye tracking technology can enhance your gameplay experience by allowing you to use head and eye movements to control the in-game camera, and to affect and interact with game environments.

Natural Targeting

You were born to aim this way


In the real world, you can look in one direction while
doing something with your hands in another direction.

As a game character, your hands, eyes and legs work
together. You look, walk and point in the same direction
at any time. And you can interact only with things that
are right in front of your game character.

Add an eye tracker and things get different. In a way,
it’s like adding a new limb: suddenly, your character can
walk, aim in one direction and look in another, all at the
same time. Or shoot where you look, without having to
move the crosshair with the mouse.

LOCK ON TO YOUR TARGETS

160+ supported games, ranging from Star Citizen,
Microsoft Flight Simulator & Euro Truck Simulator 2  to

TAG YOUR ENEMIES

The Tobii Eye Tracker 5 is the only device that
can track both your head and eyes at the same
 time for a more immersive experience.

AIM WITH YOUR EYES

Play your favourite games without having to
put anything on your head such as a
hat or a clunky headset.

Extended View

Get a broader perspective on gaming


Playing games means narrowing your perspective. And
we are not talking about focusing on a mission or a
specific game. What we mean is that when you play, you
literally have very limited vision.The boundaries are set
by the screen. It is like watching reality through the frame
of a painting.

Thanks to your eye tracker, your natural head and eye
movements can direct the in-game camera. This means
that you are no longer locked to only look forward like
your player’s character. 

HEAD & EYE TRACKING

The Tobii Eye Tracker 5 is the only device that
can track both your head and eyes at the same
 time for a more immersive experience.

STOP LOOKING WITH YOUR HANDS

By letting your real-life head movements becoming an additional input layer to your gameplay, you can keep your hands on your controllers while looking around your environment the same way you would do IRL.

SIX DEGREES OF FREEDOM

The Tobii Eye Tracker 5 uses advanced head tracking technology to translate real-life head movements and provide Six Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) in games.

Immersive Graphics

Look out for a real world experience


With immersive graphics the sounds and graphics are
dynamically adapted depending on where you look.

For example, the UI in a game is used to provide
information to you; ammo counters, health bars,
mini maps etc. However, this information is only
really relevant when you want it. 

With eye tracking your computer will know when
you are not looking at this information and therefore
be able to fade it down, giving you a cleaner screen
with less disturbances.

 

See what you want to see

HUD elements such as maps and status bar are only highlighted when you look at them, fading to give you a better full screen game experience when you’re looking away.

Get adjusted to the environment

Going from light to dark, or dark to light, often blinds you for a moment or two. With the feature Dynamic Lighting, brightness levels adjust depending on where you look.

Things just got a bit scarier

With the feature Flashlight Control, the flashlight in your hand gets locked to your gaze, so that it always points toward where you look.

Awareness

Look out for a real world experience


When the computer knows where you look, it can
create a totally unique experience in which your
gaze triggers things to happen. In a horror game, for
example, this means that things can happen at
precisely the right moment, and in a puzzle game
a vital piece can glimmer when your gaze moves
over it.

CHARACTER AWARENESS

Finally, NPC interaction can be a bit more natural than the robot-like behavior we have come to expect from our computer-generated companions.

DON'T MISS OUT ON THE ACTION

The auto-pause feature senses that you look away from the screen and pauses the game. When you look back again, the game continues.

OBJECT AWARENESS

The object awareness feature makes things that you can interact with reveal themselves by lighting up when you look at them. This is especially useful when the game environment is dark or in flat colors.
