Oculus acquires eye tracking startup
The Eye Tribe has been around for a while now, creating eye-tracking tech that could either be built into computers by OEMs, or added via a $99 developer gadget. The company was sort of a solution in search of a problem, however, before VR came along. Now it’s potentially game-changing.
The Eye Tribe’s tech could help Oculus build eye-tracking headsets that know where you’re looking and can redirect processing power to that spot in real-time, optimizing resources and making it possible to create much higher frame rates when and where needed without requiring immensely powerful computers to do so.
