    I can help with the port!

    I have mad Mac hacking skills.

    Hi Gabi,

    I would love to publish drivers for other platforms, but right now our hardware team is focusing on the Windows driver. We are having some discussions on which platforms to support next, and MacOS is of course one of the hottest candidates.

    Joel: If we decide to outsource/open source the work, we will let you know. It would be great to get help from some mad Mac hackers.

    Hi Giorgio,
    No news yet, I’m afraid. But every person showing interest in this counts, and increase the likelihood that this will be realized sooner rather than later.

    I am sick to my stomach to find that I cannot use this device on OSX.

    I am weary of watching my life seep away as I am too disabled now to code professionally.

    For a few days I believed I had a solution arriving in the post.

    I have to now look for some ugly hack.

    I hope EyeTribe eat your market share all the way to the bone.

    I am sure you have a good management team and everything, but not supporting Mac in this era is just shameful. You are losing half of the market because of it, and this should be your top priority. Moreover, you are stopping the community in building proper software on top of your device just because of your lack of support

    Agree, Tobii is missing a big part of the market with Mac. Mac has historically been the best OS for accessibility, with greater UX consistency & quality in both OS and apps than Windows – something that the accessibility market feels to a much greater degree than the average user.

    And that’s just the existing accessibility market. These days people who use computers to make a living also tend to choose Mac. RSI is a huge issue for these workers, which affects the bottom line of companies they work for. Pursuing the market of preventative treatment for things like RSI would be a comparatively easy sell, as evidenced by the rapid adoption of ergonomic chairs in the 90s (for history of that market, listen to this: http://99percentinvisible.org/episode/edge-of-your-seat/).

    Mice are horrible for us. Tobii has the technology to offer a better solution, hopefully one day they find the will.

    Thank you for your upvotes. We continue to develop our products however for the time being with the focus on gaming interactions, Mac support is not currently high priority.
