Tobii, a popular maker of eye-tracking technology, and 4tiitoo (pronounced forty-two) announced a new way that people can become more productive by using technology from both companies. 4tiitoo will work with the Tobii Eye Tracker 5L, which will allow people to control their PCs with eye-tracking and reduce how much they need to use their mouse.
Many recognize eye tracking as a technology that provides greater accessibility to computing. Our senior editor Zac Bowden wrote an entire article using eye tracking in 2017. Windows 10 also supports eye tracking in several ways.
But this new announcement from Tobii and 4tiitoo isn’t about accessibility options; it focuses on productivity. You can use technology from both companies to maintain better eye contact during calls and to quickly control parts of your PC with your eyes.
Tore Meyer, managing director of 4tiitoo, states,
Using Tobii Eye Tracking, we can provide robust gaze-based interaction to everyday
business applications. This allows us to deliver a unique competitive edge to companies
aiming to increase productivity for knowledge workers as well as support customers in
building trust and engagement in remote meetings.
