For someone who can’t use their hands or fingers eye tracking is probably the quickest, easiest and most ergonomically sound way to operate a computer. The PCEye Mini lets you surf the web, connect with friends online, play games, Skype, turn on the lights or TV, and even make spreadsheets and documents using only your eyes. Ultimately the PCEye Mini gives you greater personal freedom and independence.

The PCEye Mini runs on standard Windows computers, allowing you to work with any application that is normally controlled by a standard computer mouse. Surf the web, connect with friends online, play games, Skype, use environmental controls to turn on the lights or TV and even make spreadsheets and documents by using your eyes.

Users with limited motor skills due to ALS, MS, Spinal cord injury or other impairments can benefit greatly with the Tobii PCEye. They can enjoy:

Relaxed, precise and faster computer access

The PCEye Mini comes with the award winning Tobii Gaze Interaction Software. Gaze Selection makes it possible to control your desktop, or any other application, through an intuitive two-step process that reduces the risk of unwanted clicks. With Gaze Selection you can enjoy:

More relaxed computer access – With the two-step process of Gaze Selection, clicks are made intentionally and navigation is more intuitive, creating the most relaxed and natural computing environment.

Ability to hit smaller targets – Gaze Selection incorporates a unique zoom functionality that gives a virtually pixel-precise control of where you point, click and drag, enabling full computer access.

Faster computer access – Unique only to Tobii Gaze Selection you efficiently access all of the functions of your computer with fewer mistakes and clicks, and at high speed.

Integrated keyboard – Use the built in keyboard to write texts or to enter a web address with just your eyes.

Portable computer access

PCEye Mini fits on your tablet or laptop or when used with the EyeMobile Mini Bracket, a tablet. The device easily attaches and detaches from your screen a magnetic mounting bracket and USB2 or USB3 connection. It is very lightweight, and small enough to be easily transported and used with different computers, for example at home, at work or in school.

Scalable computer access

All processing for the eye tracker is done on the device itself, avoiding additional workload for your computer. This also means that you do not need the latest, most expensive desktop or laptop in order to use gaze interaction as a computer access method.

If you do have high PC performance demands, like playing processor intense games or if you want to keep up with technology, the modular design of the PCEye Mini is ideal. Simply upgrade your computer and continue using the same eye tracker via a single USB connection.

Questions and answers

Is it difficult to learn?

No, it is not particularly difficult. Basically it is just a case of getting used to the interaction method. We do have a lot of training videos online that can help you get started and to help you excel.

A detail that makes the EyeMobile easier to learn is the fact that it supports eye gaze and touch interaction at the time. This means that your caregiver or family member can help out in case assistance is needed.

Will it hurt my eyes?

No, but from the start your eyes might get a bit tired, because most people tend to strain themselves from ”trying too hard”. Just like with any other exercise, this will soon go away as you get more familiar and relaxed.

Is it dangerous for my eyes?

No, the light that is being emitted from the illuminators is so weak that there is no danger at all.

How are updates handled?

The Tobii PCeye Go, the eye tracker that is used in EyeMobile, comes with a software called ”Update notifier”. This software goes online and checks for updates and installs them for you, should you wish. This keeps your system up to date at all times (as long as you have an internet connection.)

Does the PCeye Mini or EyeMobile Mini work on a Mac?

Both yes and no. You can’t control the Mac OS or any mac applications. However, if you run Windows in a virtualization program such as Parallells or Bootcamp, you can use the EyeMobile/PCeye Go to control that environment.

Is there any funding for PCEye Mini or EyeMobile Mini?

At this point in time the EyeMobile Mini is not funded by Medicare or Medicaid. We can recommend setting up a crowd funding campaign to help you raise money.

How will eye tracking change my life?

It is difficult to say, because it depends on your situation, abilities, support etc. but what many of our users come back to us and say is that it gives them more privacy and greater independence. With the EyeMobile you will be able to stay in touch with friends and family, surf the web, watch movies, paint, write poems, do research on your disability etc. more on your own term and without having to rely on a caregiver or family member to help you out.

With the PCeye Go you also have greater possibilities of getting back to work, which can have a positive effect on your social life and your personal finances.

How does eye tracking work?

On a very high level eye tracking works like this:

  • Light is cast from the illuminators on the eye tracker
  • The light hits your eyes and gets reflected back to the eye tracker
  • There is a camera (or in Tobii’s case, two cameras) that sees these reflections
  • Through a whole lot of filtering and math the eye tracking software knows where you are looking on the screen.

How do you click?

There are different ways of clicking

  • Dwell click is one of the most common way. You fixate your gaze where you want to click for a predefined period of time and when that time is up you make a click
  • Blink, it is possible to blink in order to click, but this is not a very effective way of clicking
  • If you have movement in your neck, a finger or other limb you can use a switch to make a click. This can be a really fast way of interacting with the computer
  • In Tobii Gaze Selection you use a two step process where you first look at the command you want to perform, for example click, and then you look at the object you want to apply the command to, for example a url.
