Good news for gamers today!
Tobii has launched the Eye Tracker 5 that can make eye tracking possible. This device can be connected to your gaming PC and mount on display through a module.
Similar to the previous eye trackers developed by the company, the Eye Tracker 5 lets you control several functions, depending on the game you play.
At the moment, nearly 153 games are compatible with the device including Tomb Raider, Tom Clancy‘s The Division 2, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Additionally, it’ll support other games like Watch Dogs: Legion by the late 2020 or early 2021.
Designed Especially for Gamers
Tobii has revealed that the Eye Tracker 5 has been made especially for gamers.
It possesses an advanced “custom-built“ optical biometric sensor that is more responsive and faster than the eye tracker 4C. In addition to being user-friendly, the device can also unlock PCs that require a login thanks to the Windows Hello facial recognition system.
Tobii has developed a new head tracking algorithm that can precisely detect the gamer’s head movements. The company has also improved the latency problems that were plaguing its predecessors.
The Eye Tracker 5 will offer a greater field of view at 40 x 40 degrees, which is much higher when compared to the 4C model’s 38 x 29 degrees. The improved field of view can enhance the experience of gamers playing eye-tracking-compatible eSport titles – provided they take an eSports training subscription.
A rep told Tom‘s Hardware, “What differs from the 4C is improved latency consistency for Tobii Eye Tracker 5, rather than improved average latency.”
Details concerning the algorithm, and how the Eye Tracker 5 will affect the PC’s CPU is still vague. So we’ll have to wait for more information regarding the specs.
$229 Price With an Angled Mount and Design Improvements
Tobii has priced the Eye Tracker 5 at $229, nearly $60 higher than the 4C. It will have an angled mount, making it easier to attach to gaming monitors and gaming laptops, irrespective of their size.
