Eye tracking in VR is almost here folks. FOVE is taking pre-orders now and offering a discount of $50 off now thru November 9. The FOVE headset will start shipping in January 2017 for a price of $549 (After discount).
What is eye tracking?
Eye tracking in VR is the one area missing from real life. In real life you do not move your head, you often move your eyes to glance at objects. In VR today with the Rift and Vive, you have to move your head way more than you would in real life.
With the FOVE headset and eye tracking, this brings a whole new level of realism and functionality. You'll be able to watch and track items just with your eye, select menus by looking at them and open up new ways to interact with social platforms.
FOVE do not recommend using FOVE while wearing glasses because some glasses' frames will block the sensors while tracking your eyes. Some bigger glasses are OK if they fit into the headset and do not block sensors from tracking the eyes.
