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.

SMI is a leading provider of eye and gaze tracking systems for OEM applications and scientific and professional research. With more than 20 years of experience, SMI helps OEM customers shape a vision of gaze interaction for industrial, consumer and gaming applications and for eye tracking integrations in tablet, laptops, kiosk systems and other hardware. At the Game Developers Conference 2014, Sony unveiled a gaze controlled prototype of the PlayStation 4 game "Infamous: Second Son" powered by SMI's stationary eye tracking peripheral.

The mobile SMI Eye Tracking Glasses (SMI ETG) technology was used by the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) to create Talking Places - the prototype of an interactive city guide. The SMI ETG is the leading wearable eye tracking platform on the market. The device and its robust 60Hz eye tracking are being used by best in class research institutes and corporate innovators. The full wireless control of the recently announced SMI Eye Tracking Glasses 2 Wireless adds new interaction functionalities to eye tracking applications in mobile settings.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
