Tested rigidly on gaming PC’s, resulted in seemingly terrific accuracy even with contacts or spectacles on. The real problem arises when being tested on games- which in turn gave varied results across different platforms.Tested on three games and three system builds, results varied wildly in terms of both usefulness and functionality. Games such as Crysis 3, PUBG and Counterstrike were tried and tested on, and proved to be accurate on the greater side.

The Pro’s

Testing on the platform of Assassins Creed: Rogue is the “killer app” for eye tracking, being a well-known series from a major publisher. Small glances sped up aiming at enemies and often gave wide perspective views. The first-person survival game the hunter: primalgave the best results/experience with well working ocular camera.

The cons

The future

More than 100 games currently support Tobii’s eye-tracking innovation, including blockbuster hits like Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Origins and independent top picks, for example, Ori and the Blind Forest.

With regards to gaming, Donegan says that the reasonable cost of Tobii’s EyeX and Eye Tracker 4C cameras might just help bring issues to light about how the innovation can help those with handicaps. Tobii’s tracker comes in certain equipment bundles, similar to the Alienware 17 R4 workstation and the Predator 21X screen.

In these situations, a man’s look will normally prompt prior and more precise forecast by the robot, possibly expanding security and prompting better coordination.
