EyeX Developer

Develop with Eye Tracking

Create experiences for the most natural tool of interaction – your eyes.

Get Started with our SDK!

Buy the EyeX controller + Download the SDK.

The Tobii EyeX SDK provides you with the tools needed to build interactive eye-gaze enabled applications faster and easier than ever before, by building on the services provided by the Tobii EyeX Engine.

There are several EyeX SDK packages to choose from, each targeted at a specific development environment, from UE4, Unity, .NET, to C++.

The EyeX SDK is for interactive and gaming applications only. If you want to develop software for analytical purposes, post processing or aggregation of eye tracking data across multiple users, please contact Tobii’s licensing team.

Easy to Develop with our EyeX Engine & SDK

Go to the Tobii Developer Zone to find all SDKs, samples, ideas and discussions on developing with the Tobii EyeX.

The Tobii EyeX Engine provides a framework that takes care of all the background bits.

Eye Tracking simply adds a new controller layer to your game. Continue using mice, keyboard, joystick, etc... as normal and just add eye tracking with the most natural tool of interaction – our eyes.

Gaming Use Cases - Examples

Natural Targeting:
Son of Nor

  • Aim with your eyes. Look at something and press a button to fire, throw or pick up. Multitask.
  • Run in one direction and fire in another at the same time or shoot in two directions at once. It is loads of fun, very intuitive and incredibly immersive.

Infinite Screen:           Assassin's Creed

  • You control the game camera’s field of view, essentially expanding the scene which creates a more engrossing experience.
  • As you gaze across the screen, the game intuitively pans to where and what you want to look at.

Immersive Graphics & Sound

  • Create a game world closer to reality.
  • Manipulate depth-of-field in any game with a simple look at a particular detail to enhance its graphic. Create emotions by making objects appear in the peripheral vision.

"I’m obviously not a neuroscientist, but my imagination is on fire when I think about a generation of children playing games this way."
