Eye Tracking Controller Plans

Tobii and SteelSeries announce details on a collaboration for eye-tracking for videogames, calling this "the next big thing in gaming and computer interaction," as they expand on technology used to help people overcome physical problems to interface with computers. This will be shown off at next week's CES where development kits will be sold, and word is they plan on releasing this to the public this coming summer. Here's word:

Tobii eye tracking increases the bandwidth between the gamer and the game, allowing gamers to do more at the same time, which also creates a richer gaming experience. Add an extra aiming mechanism, remove the interruption of the game play by creating easier access to menus and commands, or make games with complex controls easier to learn.

“The integration of eye tracking into the game experience is literally a game changer – not only for the gamers themselves but also for developers,” said Hawver. “Eye tracking capabilities offer game developers a new, creative approach to game development. It becomes a truly immersive experience for players.”
