RightEye, Tobii to develop eye-tracking system
RightEye LLC will collaborate with Tobii to create new hardware solutions for vision tests and training games for customers in vision, health care and sports markets.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Tobii to advance our product and offer customers a more portable, integrated eye-tracking system to further enhance their users’ experience with RightEye tests and training games,” Adam Gross, RightEye CEO and co-founder, said in a press release.
“This solution is unique because it offers a single platform that delivers a broad range of assessments using eye tracking, from screening for concussion and other brain health issues, to identification of athletes’ vision strengths and weaknesses, to detection of early indicators for autism and Parkinson’s disease, even flagging vision issues that may be impeding reading.”
This novel system will offer RightEye’s revolutionary vision tests, designed as interactive computer games, that use the patients’ eyes to shoot down asteroids and save the planet from aliens, according to the release. RightEye’s cloud-based software instantly analyzes the users’ eye movement data to generate a report that will provide data on visual speed and accuracy, visual processing, depth perception and dry eye indicators, according to the release.
“At Tobii, a core part of our mission has always been to allow our customers to use eye tracking to improve the lives of people around the world,” Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii, said in the release. “We are very excited about the opportunity to expand the use of eye tracking into vision care and sports through the collaboration with RightEye.”
