Eye tribe has introduced new brilliant technology which will make life easier for smartphone users. Because, it has to be attached with smartphones or tablets.



Ever been playing a game on your phone and thought to yourself, ‘hey, this would be a load better if you didn’t have to use your  thumbs for control’? Well, The Eye Tribe has come to your rescue with it’s astonishingly accurate and affordable eye tracker. Of course, The Eye Tribe isn’t just providing to ludicrously indolent people who can’t be bothered to move their finger across the screen. The possibilities for this software are quite extensive, from dashboard tech implementation to helping people with disabilities.

The Eye tracker is an aftermarket currently available for Windows-based tablets and computers and serves many functions from gaming to reading. Built to work with any Windows 7 or 8 device with a USB 3 interface, The Eye Tribe Tracker allows users to navigate, interact and actuate software running on the device, strictly by tracking eye movement or by a conjugation of eye tracking and touch. This chunky bar sits beneath your Android tablet and locks onto your eyeballs, using your line of sight to move an invisible cursor across the tablet’s screen. Glance at an icon in the eye tracker’s app and it’ll instantly be highlighted, although you’ll still need to tap the screen (anywhere will do) to select it.

The technology works fine in a range of environments and can be used for device control such as “aiming in games, eye activated login or hands-free typing,” as well as hands-free navigation of websites and apps. The first iteration of this device comes with a Windows SDK (software development kit) so developers can begin to learn how to code Windows apps that use the device.

A prototype of that vision is shown below (created for Android OS and running on an existing Samsung tablet).
