Android VR HMD Eye Tracking Now Running 500Hz
EyeTech, in partnership with Charles River Analytics and Sensics, is taking mobile VR a step further with untethered and integrated ocular response measurement. The VR headset is able to project and track two eyes simultaneously in VR mode. Running at hundreds of frames per second, the system monitors and records in real-time a user’s microsaccades, pupil dilation, and other metrics in response to the VR experience. This paves the way for novel interactions and applications of mobile VR including enhanced immersiveness for entertainment applications or objective physiological response monitoring for potential medical applications.
“Charles River Analytics is excited at the opportunities for both research and operational uses that EyeTech’s advanced, high-speed, and mobile eye-tracking solution provides. Their ability to acquire ocular responses at up to 500 Hz achieves a level of performance never before seen in Virtual Reality (VR) platforms, enabling a new frontier of VR based applications to be explored and produced, further pushing the realm of what is achievable with mobile VR systems.”
