Can I use my Tobii Pro eye tracker on Mac?

You can use the Tobii 4C with GazeShare, on your Mac. GazeShare is a web based tool for conducting observational user studies by recording your screen, audio, web cam and gaze.

Apart from this, the following applies for Tobii Pro Eye Trackers:

  • Tobii Pro eye trackers using a direct Ethernet connection to the computer can be used on Mac.
  • Tobii Pro eye trackers connected through USB to your computer are not supported on Mac.
  • The built-in user camera of Tobii Pro TX300 uses an USB connection that requires special drivers only available for Windows.
  • While the Tobii Pro SDK for Mac will provide code samples and environments for use on Mac, Tobii Pro Studio and Tobii Pro Lab are not compatible with Mac.
  • Running Tobii Pro Studio or Tobii Pro Lab via Bootcamp or Virtual Machine is not supported due to unpredictable behavior.
