Tobii Eye Tracking is watching you, watching Tobii
Tobii is a smart eye tracking device integrated into some Alienware, Acer and MSI gaming laptops. Tobii eye tracking means you can look at something, say a Zombie, click a button on the controller, then your view instantly changes to the zombies head, click again, and you have Zombie death. The eye tracking tech not only applies to reducing the zombie population but can even help within Windows by jumping the mouse pointer to where you are looking. Tobii eye tracking will be integrated into some future VR headsets and available as a standalone device to add to any monitor.
Check back later for the full review of Tobii eye tracking.
We also explored non-VR related booths, such as InBody scanning and audio from Audio-Technica. We will cover those later because we had so much fun in them.
