Eye Tracking Technology from Tobii Coming at CES

Tobii Technology will unveil Tobii REX at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show next week in Las Vegas. Tobii REX is the world's first gaze interaction computer peripheral for the consumer market. It redefines the user experience by the power of Tobii Gaze, the revolutionary and award-winning eye-tracking-based interface introduced last year, and enables users to control the computer by combining their eye gaze with other controls, such as touch, mouse and keyboard. Tobii REX is available now for software developers and will be available for consumers in fall 2013.

"We believe gaze interaction is going to be the next major advancement in mainstream computer interface," said Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii Technology. "Tobii has been driving innovations ineye tracking for more than a decade, and we are excited and honored to be able to bring this first integration of eye tracking into a product for tech-enthusiast consumers."

Tobii REX Limited Edition

Tobii REX is a new computer peripheral product that adds Tobii Gaze features to any Windows 8 PC. Tobii REX adheres easily to the bottom of any desktop computer screen and plugs into the computer by USB connection. Tobii REX adds core Tobii Gaze functionality integrated to work in combination with other controls, such as touch, mouse and keyboard. Tobii will be making 5,000 Tobii REX peripherals available for consumer purchase by fall 2013. Consumers can sign up now to receive a Tobii REX VIP preorder invitation, which Tobii anticipates will be distributed in spring 2013.

Tobii Gaze

At CES, Tobii will demonstrate some of the core concepts of Tobii Gaze: Gaze Select, Gaze Scroll, Gaze Zoom and Gaze Navigate. The Tobii Gaze concepts are using Tobii's pioneering and world-leading eye-tracking technology. By adding Tobii Gaze to existing controls, such as the keyboard, touchpad and mouse, the user experience is fundamentally transformed. Tobii Gaze reduces a majority of the fuss of moving the mouse pointer around and makes the computer interaction faster, more intuitive and more fun.
