I would like to thank Oscar for his many and passionate years at Tobii and wish him all the best of luck in his future role.”

We are also seeing very large demand for our technology in VR and AR and are working with major OEMs to make eye tracking foundational to the next generation devices. Tobii has significant momentum right now, which makes my decision bittersweet,” said Oscar Werner. “I am very proud to have been a part of Tobii for nearly a decade and I would like to thank all of my amazing colleagues for your enthusiasm and commitment. I am absolutely convinced that Tobii is ready for mass markets and that very exciting times are ahead of us.”
