There’s a saying, “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” But thanks to Tobii, they’re becoming so much more. During a recent meeting with the eye-tracking company, I learned about the the latest advances in the technology, which will enable even more immersive interaction with game characters, and potentially change the way we play in virtual reality.

 

For those unfamiliar with the company or the tech, Tobii has become synonymous with the glossy black bar making its way onto an increasing amount of gaming laptops. A series of mini-projectors create a pattern of light on the eyes, which the company calls Near Infrared. Sensors continuously scan the eyes looking for the Near Infrared pattern, and relays that information back to an algorithm to determine where your eyes are looking.
