Annoyingly I can no longer edit my post, so I have to create a new one. Messy.

More annoyingly, the forum logged me out without telling me and ate my reply when I submitted it. So I’m having to rewrite it.

I found some potential candidates here http://www.pcworld.com/article/2911098/computers/mini-pc-invasion-10-radically-tiny-computers-that-fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand.html#slide9 and here http://www.pcworld.com/article/2911098/computers/mini-pc-invasion-10-radically-tiny-computers-that-fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand.html#slide12

Can someone with knowledge of the resource consumption of EyeX recommend a suitable miniature PC? The main problem will be that of power I’m guessing. With EyeX connected into the miniature PC’s USB, this might forbid the miniature PC from then drawing power from a USB port as the combined consumption will probably exceed the USB three current limit specification.

Tobii people, if you wish to consider yourselves the world leaders in this technology, you must support OSX and Linux.

But rather than working on a complete software stack, which would take a team months, why not work on a Windows proxy System via UDP?

That should be very lightweight coding — it would just sit on top of your existing API, communicating bidirectionally with any clients that have attached.

Even calibration could be performed through this protocol.
