Tobii Gaming - Esports

Tobii Eye Tracker 5 was engineered to enable the most exciting gaming experiences money can buy. Not just for gamers, but content creators too.

The small piece of hardware you seamlessly attach to the bottom of your screen has over 20 years of Tobii innovation built into it, as well as rigorous user testing and an industry-leading understanding of human attention and focus.

The biggest video game publishers such as EA, Ubisoft, Warner Bros. Games and Microsoft have enhanced the experience in some of their most popular games thanks to Tobii’s best-selling product.

But why exactly does Tobii Eye Tracker 5 make over 170 leading titles like F1 23, Star Citizen, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Far Cry 6, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla more immersive, more intuitive and more fun? Find out below.

Revolutionary head tracking

Tobii Eye Tracker 5 offers a unique capability to not only track your eyes, but also your head simultaneously. This combined technology allows you to use your natural head movements as an additional input layer, freeing up your hands to use your controller, wheel or hotas while exploring the game environment.

This head tracking technology also provides Six Degrees of Freedom (6DoF), allowing more realistic in-game movement that enhances all sorts of game genres, especially driving and flight simulation.

Immersive Graphics

Tobii Eye Tracker 5 empowers game developers to be more creative because it understands what information is relevant to you at any given time. It allows studios to add more immersive features such as keeping HUD elements like maps and health bars out of sight until your eyes look for them. 

One powerful example of this is the ultra-realistic view from the seat of a Formula 1 car, where you see exactly what the driver sees.  

Dynamic Lighting and Flashlight Control are another two features that offer a more immersive gaming experience. Dynamic Lighting adjusts brightness levels depending on where you look to give you more focused gameplay, and Flashlight Control adds a layer of realism and control, especially when playing survival or horror games.   

Ultra awareness

Gaming that feels like a real-world experience is possible with the Tobii Eye Tracker 5. Your gaze alone can trigger lifelike interactions with NPCs (non-playable characters) and enhance gameplay by illuminating interactive objects when you look at them, particularly in dark or monotonous environments. 

Also, many games offer an auto-pause feature thanks to Tobii Eye Tracker 5. This means your gameplay conveniently stops when your attention turns away from the screen. 

Smooth targeting

Tobii Eye Tracker 5 enables more precision in your gameplay. With gaze-based target selection, you can lock onto targets by looking at them, enhancing your combat effectiveness. 

Tagging and tracking enemies is made easy as you automatically mark them just by looking at them. Also, your initial aim is now determined by your eye's focus, offering more precision than moving your mouse to the target. 

Crystal clear content creation

Tobii Ghost is a downloadable software tool that enables creators to make their content more engaging. Top-ranked creators such as Pewdiepie, Markpelier and
Olli43 use Tobii Ghost to increase audience engagement thanks to its attention and eye tracking. Tobii Ghost allows them to precisely guide their audience through gameplay with indicators that show exactly where they’re looking when playing.

Tobii Ghost also has a unique integration with Twitch that gives viewers the power to customize eye-tracking overlays to their preferences.

Additionally, streamers can stand out in the crowded world of content creation thanks to exclusive partnerships between Tobii Gaming and major content creation tools.

The Elgato app App allows streamers to control Tobii Ghost settings via the Stream Deck (a customizable control deck designed for streamers and content creators). Thanks to tracking and translating actual eye movements, Animaze enables streamers to create more lifelike Vtuber models (digital avatars or personas used by content creators). Lastly, Streamloots has a pack viewers can buy with eye tracking challenges so streamers can create an additional revenue stream and increase engagement with viewers.
