Tobii EyeMobile brings eye-tracking technology to your tablet
There are many things we take for granted. Take for instance how quickly a webpage loads on your phone. We get upset when it starts to take more than a few seconds, but it’s really kind of amazing that such a little device has come so far in such a short amount of time. Mobile phones weren’t even a ‘thing’ a little over thirty years ago. Now we can switch from playing Angry Birds to sending emails for work in less than 10 seconds.
Now imagine having a physical or communication impairment when you aren’t used to having one. You look at aspects of your body in wholly different ways. Of course, having an impairment doesn’t mean you aren’t able to do anything, it just means the way you go about daily tasks is a bit different. The Tobii EyeMobile will give users the ability to ‘navigate, control and access apps, Internet, music, e-books, social media, games and more through the simple, natural and relaxed movement of the eyes, allowing them to live richer, more connected and independent lives.’
Needless to say, this thing is pretty awesome. It’s only been in recent years that this was available for PC, and now they’re targeting tablets. This one in particular is meant for Windows 8 Pro tablets, and as it connects via USB, you’ll be able to change out if necessary. This is a pretty costly endeavor, as you’ll need to buy the tablet (price varies depending on the type you choose), and the $4,250 setup that includes the mounting bracket, and the Tobii PCEye Go eye tracker.
