We're excited to invite the eye tracking community to our annual Tobii Pro Reception at ECVP!
This year we want to talk about VR and how eye tracking adds value to it. The selection of this topic is not random; VR is gaining momentum across multiple industries as it allows us to move some real-world applications into the virtual world. Now we're joining the movement by integrating our core eye tracking technology into VR.
You will hear some inspiring talks around eye tracking in VR, its capabilities, value for research, and much more. Afterwards, you can try all the technologies presented and have a conversation with our team about the research you're doing and your needs and wants in terms of eye tracking and VR solutions.
Last year we embraced the Berlin vibe with a techno Dj in a hipster part of the city, but this year we will do it in style with an Italian vibe - sea view, Mediterranean cuisine, and cold prosecco!
It's going to be fabulous, so don't miss it!

Short Summary: With the range of realities for attention research rapidly expanding, in this talk I will discuss real-world, 360 video and virtual reality eye-tracking solutions. In particular I will talk about how to get the best data from your participants by selecting the right reality and, in the case of VR, some of the considerations for building that reality. Throughout the talk I will use examples from recent research projects I have worked on to illustrate the potential of the different realities as well as the consequences for research design.
20:10 – "Try and talk" demo stations and open networking
