Last year at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona we gave you a sneak peak of our eye tracking software for Android. So far the Android version has only been available to a very few selected beta clients, but today at CES 2015 in Las Vegas we are thrilled to be launching our Eye Tracking Development Kit for Android.
The Eye Tribe Tracker started shipping at CES last year for the Windows platform, and soon after for OS X. We wanted to enable affordable eye tracking quickly to a large crowd of developers, and succeeded with this by shipping out thousands of development kit all around the world.
Today we are thrilled to enable The Eye Tribe Tracker for Android, making it truly mobile thereby enabling mobile OEMs and developers on the Android platform to create new experiences and products for the consumer market. During CES 2015, which runs Jan. 6-9, The Eye Tribe will demonstrate its Eye Tracking SDK for Android that provides a first step towards integration of robust and affordable eye tracking into mobile devices.
We’re extremely excited to be back at CES and show how quickly we’ve advanced our products for mobile form factors. With our solution OEMs can fast-track integration of real eye tracking. We want to bust the myth that it is an expensive and complicated affair.
The Eye Tribe’s software solution is designed intentionally for integration and is based on industry standards (MIPI, I2C, USB). The Eye Tribe eye tracking software now offers support for Android, Windows, and OS/X, in addition to hardware reference designs for popular form factors. Because The Eye Tribe software relies only on standard affordable components that are easily integrated into next generation devices, the company is able to help OEMs fast track strategies to move new products to mass market consumers featuring robust eye tracking functions at an affordable price.
