    Hiya! I’ve gotten an eyeX via GDC, and would love to start developing some unity apps and demos. Sadly I’m on OSX. =(

    Another vote for support.

    Please me know if there are any alternatives or methods I could use besides a windows vm.

    I created an account just to chime in on this discussion and throw in another vote for linux drivers. I’m a developer for an embedded engineering firm and received a EyeX controller kit as a free gift with a new workstation that I just bought from newegg. What led me to this thread started from a search on ebay to determine how much I could sell this free gift for in order to recoup some of the cost of my new computer. Initially I thought that it was a neat idea, but seeing as it was only supported on windows, I had no interest exploring it any further. However, in my search I came across a demo video produced by Tobii and I really saw how neat this thing is. I exclusively develop in vim and detest having to move to the mouse, and I think with this kit, I could do away with my mouse for good….however, I also detest windows. Please consider supporting linux.

    Any company that exclusively targets windows for its hardware nowadays has doomed itself to irrelevancy.

    I suspect there will be something that will overtake Tobii quite quickly once the tech becomes more advanced. In the meantime, best we can do is wait.

    Dears,

    Any news about multi-plataform support?

    Best,

    @fabio I think you should give up on the progress report. We’ve tried for a couple of years now and it seems it doesn’t work on Tobii’s parent company.

    +1 strong support for linux driver.

    I love my Tobii – fantastic on Windows 10 – but will be forced to try an Eye Tribe if they release a linux driver first.

    +1 for Linux support, at least basic drivers; the community would make the rest

    Another vote for linux support. If you guys had it, I’d buy in a heartbeat.

    And yet another vote for linux support \o/ I’m a developper and pointing-assist on linux would be a huge productivity enhancement for me. Thanks.

    Another vote here. I dual boot on an Alienware 17R4 and can only use eye tracking on Windows
