EyeTech Digital Systems
Arizona-based EyeTech Digital Systems offers several interesting eye trackers where the new V1 caught my attention with its extended track-box of 25 x 18 x 50cm. The rather large depth range is provided through a custom auto focus mechanism developed in cooperation with Brigham Young University Dept. of Mechanical Engineering. This makes the device particularly suitable for larger displays such as public displays/digital signage, still the I'd imaging the calibration procedure to remain, ideally you'd want to walk up and interact/collect data automatically without any wizards or intervention. In any case, a larger trackbox is always welcome and it certainly opens up new opportunities. EyeTechs V1 offers 20cm more than most.
