Computer Access through Gaze Interaction
The PCEye runs on standard Windows computers, allowing you to work with any application that is normally controlled by a standard computer mouse. Surf the web, connect with friends online, play games, Skype, use environmental controls to turn on the lights or TV and even make spreadsheets and documents by using your eyes.
Users with limited motor skills due to ALS, spinal cord injuries or other impairments can benefit greatly with the Tobii PCEye. They can enjoy:
Relaxed, precise and faster computer access
The PCEye comes with the award winning Gaze Selection. Gaze Selection makes it possible to control your desktop, or any other application, through an intuitive two-step process that reduces the risk of unwanted clicks. With Gaze Selection you can enjoy:
More relaxed computer access – With the two-step process of Gaze Selection, clicks are made intentionally and navigation is more intuitive, creating the most relaxed and natural computing environment.
Ability to hit smaller targets – Gaze Selection incorporates a unique zoom functionality that gives a virtually pixel-precise control of where you point, click and drag, enabling full computer access.
Faster computer access – Unique only to Tobii Gaze Selection you efficiently access all of the functions of your computer with fewer mistakes and clicks, and at high speed.
Integrated keyboard – Use the built in keyboard to write texts or to enter a web address.
Portable computer access
The Tobii PCEye comes in two sizes. PCEye Go fits on your laptop or on a smaller computer screen. The larger PCEye Pro docks under larger desktop screens and is particularly suitable for those who need to display and access a lot of information simultaneously.
Both devices easily attach and detach from your computer using a magnetic mounting bracket and USB connection. Both devices are lightweight, and small enough to be easily transported and used with different computers, for example at home, at work or in school.
Scalable computer access
All processing for the eye tracker is done on the device itself, avoiding additional workload for your computer. This also means that you do not need the latest, most expensive desktop or laptop in order to use gaze interaction as a computer access method.
If you do have high PC performance demands, like playing processor intense games or if you want to keep up with technology, the modular design of the PCEye is ideal. Simply upgrade your computer and continue using the same eye tracker via a single USB connection.
