Tobii EyeAsteroids™ is the first and only purely eye-controlled arcade game in the world. Gaze interaction is fast and intuitive and adds entirely new dimensions to gaming and arcades.
Eye control is immersive and intuitive
Using your eyes as a game controller is an almost magical experience. It’s as if the game can read your mind, creating the sensation of having supernatural powers.
Using your eyes to direct attention is fundamental in human interaction. Using your eyes to interact with games, on the other hand, is completely new. With gaze interaction, the game understands your gaze the same way people around you do, taking immersion and game intensity to a new level.
Eye control is a unique experience
When playing the eye-controlled Tobii EyeAsteroids, your hands literally become superfluous. It is guaranteed to provide an entirely new experience that differs radically from traditional controls, dance pads and gesture-controlled games, where you need to actively do something to make things happen.
Tobii Eye Asteroids offers something that is suitable both in arcades and beyond arcade halls, such as company reception areas, exhibitions, and other venues. A retro game equipped with ultra-modern technology, it is guaranteed to attract attention.

Earth’s survival is at stake. Use the eye lasers to destroy the asteroids on a collision course with Earth. Experience the newest and greatest adventure in our history.
Tobii EyeAsteroids is designed as a classic arcade game, but it has a unique eye control feature. This means that you use your gaze to aim and shoot. The goal of the game is to survive and amass as many points as possible by destroying asteroids while staying alive on Earth as long as possible.
Earth is the player’s avatar in the game. To defend itself from oncoming asteroids, Earth can fire laser beams wherever the player is looking and pick up items by moving over them. If Earth collides with an asteroid, it takes damage. If it sustains enough damage, Earth is destroyed and the game ends.
Asteroids are the game’s main antagonists and are governed solely by initial inertia and gravitational forces. Gravitation affects all entities in the scene, pulling them toward each other.
Power-ups are the player’s only allies and grant different bonuses depending on their type:
- Bombs can either be picked up for a large point bonus, or they can be destroyed to clear the screen of asteroids. Beware that destroying a bomb yields the player no extra points and destroys other power-ups floating about.
- Batteries can be picked up for a short burst of energy, doubling the output effect of Earth’s laser.
- Health baubles can be picked up to regenerate lost health.
- Shields grant Earth invulnerability to all attacks for a limited time.
Your progress is measured in levels and the game gets harder as time passes. At higher levels, you need to move your body to avoid life-threatening asteroids that eventually start to shoot back at you.
Play well and make the high score list!
