Tobii Dynavox, a company based in Pittsburgh, PA, is releasing what it claims is the world’s smallest eye tracker designed for people with disabilities that can’t use their hands. The PCEye Mini is a bit wider than a typical pencil, and can be positioned out of the way in the wedge of a laptop or next to a desktop monitor. It allows anyone to use a Windows computer via its proprietary software interface that was designed for intuitive use while preventing unwanted clicks. The Tobii Gaze Interaction Software uses a technique known as Gaze Selection to quickly go from click to click, only selecting to click when you really want to.
The firm also touts the system’s high precision to easily click on small objects thanks to a zoom feature that automatically adjusts to make sure you have the option to click on just what your target is.
Here’s a demonstration of how gaze selection would work using the PCEye Mini:
