Clip-On Tracker Gives Users Hands-Free Control Over Tablets [Video]

Eye Tribe lets users control their devices using eye movements.

Do away with swiping on your tablets and devices with the Eye Tribe Tracker, a clip-on tracker that lets users control their devices using eye movements.

The Eye Tribe Tracker connects via USB 3 and tracks the exact point that the user is looking at on the screen. It’s the smallest eye tracker in the world and allows hands-free navigation of apps and websites on most new tablets, laptops, and desktops. The tracker also includes eye-activated login.


The Eye Tribe Tracker comes with a software development kit or SDK that lets users integrate the company’s eye tracking technology into games and applications.

The first release only supports Microsoft Windows (XP SP1 or newer), but the creators are working on support for other major platforms.

Startup The Eye Tribe demonstrated the tracker at TechCrunch Disrupt Europe earlier this week and announced that they are looking for the best ways to apply eye control through a competition for the development community. The 20 best ideas will get an Eye Tribe Tracker and will be featured on the website. More details about the competition can be found on the company website.

Those interested can pre-order the eye tracker for $99.


Watch the video below for more about the Eye Tribe Tracker.
