Gaming laptop recognizes, reacts and controls game activity with looks, stares and gazes
MSI released the GT72S G Tobii, the world’s first gaming notebook with built-in eye tracking technology. That means you can now play and control video games by moving your eyes. That could mean switching targets, selecting an object, or simply looking away to pause the game. However, game makers will need to update their games to make them eye-compatible. Some of the first games available include Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, ArmA III, Elite Dangerous, and more at www.tobii.com/apps.
MSI’s GT72S G Tobii gives streaming an added dimension by seamlessly and instantly overlaying eye-tracking into streams, giving viewers’ added perspective on the real-time game play experience for supported streaming platforms like XSplit Gamecaster. Tobii’s industry-leading eye-tracking technology with triple dual lens near-IR illuminators can also precisely track eye movements in any room under any lighting conditions.
GT72S G Tobii is 17-inch gaming laptop compatible with Windows 10 and Windows Hello, the new password-free login system. By going through a 15-second set-up process, users can securely log into their computers using a personalized glance; highlight, select or delete items with one look; seamlessly zoom and center maps without scrolling; and even sift through Windows, folders and its applications without lifting a finger.
MSI’s GT72S G Tobii will be equipped with the same components found in versions without eye-tracking technology, including the latest Intel Core-i7 processors, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980M extreme graphics, Killer DoubleShot Network, Nahimic Sound Technology, XSplit Gamecaster, a full color backlit keyboard by SteelSeries, and more.
For those want to add eye tracking technology to existing Windows 10 laptops and desktops, the Tobii EyeX Controller or SteelSeries Sentry Gaming Eye Tracker will do the job for under $200.
