SMI's Sneak Preview of Gaze Interaction at Siggraph 2014

BERLIN and TELTOW, Germany, August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) reveals a lineup of smart gaze interaction demos at Siggraph. Visitors to SMI booth have more chances than ever to learn about the benefits of gaze interaction for gaming and computing first hand at the show. 

Smart and intuitive human-computer interaction, real-time content adaption and optimized use of rendering resources - these and more benefits can be experienced hands-on at the eye tracking demos presented by SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) at Siggraph in Vancouver, Canada (August 12-14, 2014, SMI booth 652).

The brand new action adventure game ILJA features the next-gen active gaze interaction allowing the gamers to turn, jump, select weapon, and shoot just by looking at the target. The game is powered by SMI's remote eye tracker RED-n which has been made available for OEMs earlier this month.

An interactive game in a head mounted display will be available for attendees who want the added thrill of aiming and shooting with their eyes as they wear the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. The headset demo has now been enhanced with a new and yet unannounced social interaction feature. The SMI eye tracking technology inside has been proven with more than 100,000 users and provides unmatched robustness.

Also debuting at Siggraph: The next generation of SMI's leading mobile eye tracking technology, SMI Eye Tracking Glasses 2 Wireless.
