I just got my new Tobii EyeX 4C and was pretty excited about the head tracking. However, there doesn’t seem to be any demo applications showing how it works. I would love to see a simple demo app or even a calibration tool for the head tracking. Even a demo video would be nice. I would like to integrate head tracking but I’m a little uncertain whether it will pay off if there are no demos or even videos available. I realize you just launched it, but do you have any idea when there will be more content available?December 17, 2016 at 13:14 #6046
Hi @phylaxer, Head tracking is only supported in games that have integrated the feature or games that have the feature implemented in Infinite Screen Extension.
For example, in the flight simulators, Elite Dangerous, you will find head tracking fully supported.December 21, 2016 at 21:56 #6066
Do you have any plan to provide an interface to acquire head position (x, y, z) as well as head rotation (pitch, yaw and roll). I recently bought the 4C eye tracker and hope we can do some development using the added head pose data. Otherwise I would stick to my current EyeX.
I don’t quite understand what you mean by “the head tracking is only supported in games …”. I though game developers also need the head pose data to integrate into their games, how did they obtain the data?
Thanks a lot.December 26, 2016 at 12:02 #6096
I am afraid that for the time being, the public SDK available with the Tobii Eye Tracker C4 does not yet include functions for accessing head tracking. We are working on including this for future releases, so please check back with us for updates.January 1, 2017 at 22:49 #6154
Thanks for the explanation Grant! I bought the 4C to use head tracking in my own apps so I look forward to API support.January 4, 2017 at 21:33 #6171
We appreciate the patience! We are working hard to get this out for our users 🙂January 18, 2017 at 15:39 #6248
Do you have a general sense whether it might be weeks or months until a public SDK is available? Not to pressure you, it’s more so I know whether I should pursue a temporary alternative in the meantime.January 18, 2017 at 17:59 #6250
We are working on it. We have some early build running in Unity, but there’s still work to do. Clean up, documentation, packaging, testing etc. So stay tuned.

C or C# too please! I don’t use Unity but the C or C# libraries are general enough that I can use them in almost any app.March 20, 2017 at 18:41 #6529
@grant @alex hey I’m checking in to see how things are going with the head tracking API? Are you still working on this feature? Any update on ETA?March 21, 2017 at 13:17 #6539
Hi! I sent you a beta package by email.May 9, 2017 at 16:47 #6820
Hi @alex, I would also be interested in having a look at the beta headtracking package for Unity, if possible?May 9, 2017 at 16:59 #6821
We will release it very soon. Please stay tuned!
