Tobii Technology is an incredibly innovative company. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, this small ISV make eye tracking hardware and software that enables people with disabilities to interact with a computing device using only their eyes. There are no peripheral hardware requirements for communicating with the My Tobii P10 device: all that is needed are eyes. Of course, there are many applications for this type of eye-controlled user interaction technology (as discussed in the interview, this area is rife with possibility). Tobii devices are also used in scientific research. In fact, Microsoft is a Tobii customer. We use their devices in our user interaction research programs.
Here, we meet the CEO of the company along with the My Tobii application lead software developer and development manager. Of course we get a demo and talk about some nuts and bolts. I’m really impressed with this small company. So innovative! In fact, Tobii was one of the winners in the recent Ingenuity Point worldwide ISV contest.
