Tobii AB (publ) Key Developments

Tobii Unveils Second Generation PC Gaming Peripheral, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C

Tobii unveiled its second generation PC gaming peripheral, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. Requiring a single USB connection, gamers can own more immersive and natural gaming experiences without having to upgrade their existing systems or wear designated head gear. Replacing the current Tobii EyeX gaming peripheral, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C is available for $149 pre-order at TobiiGaming.com on October 25, shipping November 25, 2016. Intended to complement, rather than replace, traditional PC gaming inputs, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C uses gamer’s eye movement to create a new input modality. Pairing eye tracking with mouse and keyboard or gamepad controls give gamers a richer, more immersive experience as they are able to mimic actions that occur in real life, such as looking for cover or aiming at a target. Available in over 40 titles at TobiiGaming.com including, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Tom Clancy’s The Division and Watch Dogs 2 (coming soon), several new eye tracking enhanced games are added monthly. Tobii expects 100 eye tracking enhanced games by the end of 2017, including several more upcoming AAA titles. Integrating customer feedback from existing Tobii EyeX gamers, Tobii made five key advancements for the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C: Adding head tracking functionality, making it the only gaming device to provide simultaneous head and eye tracking capabilities, providing a superior experience in simulator titles like Elite: Dangerous. (Currently in Beta). Adding Tobii EyeChip, the world’s first eye tracking ASIC, to reduce CPU load and power consumption from the host computer. Decreasing the size and visibility of the illuminators. Moving to an integrated USB2 cord (USB 2.0 BC 1.2) to increase the amount of compatible host devices. Further advancing its eye tracking quality with additional performance enhancements. Keeping in line with Tobii EyeX, the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C will also support facial recognition for Windows Hello, Microsoft’s password-free login, allowing gamers to unlock their device with a glance.
