Better devices

Improved HMD performance. Lightweight and power-efficient devices. Headsets that automatically identify and adapt to the user. It’s all possible with eye tracking. Read more

Foveated rendering
The human eye processes a small area of the field of view in high definition. Devices can do the same and save precious processing power if they are able to understand where the user focuses in real time. Learn more here.
Interpupillary distance
Measuring the distance between a person's pupils enables the headset to automatically adapt to unique facial features, increasing the visual quality and comfort of VR headsets for a broad range of the population.
User identification
With native eye tracking, a VR headset can efficiently recognize different individuals, removing the need for user selection and authentication — enhancing security and simplifies profile management for multiple users.

Rich social interactions. Virtual objects and environments that respond to gaze. Experiences that feel intuitive and immersive. Eye tracking enriches entertainment and usability in VR. Read more

Hand-eye coordination
Hand-eye coordination guides many commonplace actions, such as picking up and throwing objects. VR and AR experiences gain intuitivity when we can leverage our gaze together with hand controllers to interact with virtual objects.
Interactive eye contact
We use our eyes to communicate and express emotions. Eye tracking makes is possible for virtual avatars to replicate eye movements, giving a new dimension to multiplayer environments and social interactions in VR.
2-step interaction
Use gaze as an input modality, to streamline menu navigation, object selection, and many other interactions. You simply look at what you want to select and confirm, with no need for additional movements or pointing with controllers.
Natural aim
Many VR solutions rely on nonintuitive movements such as a nod of the head or selection on the controller to indicate direction of interest. VR becomes highly intuitive and immersive when we can use our gaze to interact with objects, just as we do in real life.
Tech reviews
Tech reviews
“Much like capacitive touch transformed the smartphone industry, technologies like eye tracking have the potential to do similar things in the VR and AR space.”
“Tobii showed us eye tracking inside a VR HMD that was as perfect an implementation as we’ve seen. That, coupled with the company’s unique position in the current market, places Tobii in a prime position for the market’s future.”​
“Trying Tobii’s technology for just 30 minutes has already ruined me for every VR headset without it. I’d call that a success.”

Engadget

“I left the [Tobii] demo convinced that once you’ve tried a VR headset with eye-tracking included you’ll never want to wear one without it again.”
