Tobii Pro Tutorial Session: Eye Tracking and Virtual Reality

The team at Tobii Pro invites you and your colleagues to attend an inspiring tutorial session about eye tracking and virtual reality, and how integrating the two can bring value to your research.

Eye tracking in VR has enormous possibilities for research and interaction. Tobii Pro has integrated our mobile eye tracking technology, Tobii Pro Glasses 2, into the commercial head-mounted display in the Oculus Rift. This integration allows users to develop tools for virtual environments in their own research, while providing insights into a wide range of topics.

About the Tutorial

This tutorial is designed to give you an introduction to virtual reality, eye tracking, and to demonstrate the potential of fusion the two technologies. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on session, where we will discuss previous use cases, demonstrate the integration solution, and answer questions on how to get started.
