Just received my Tobii eyex and tried it on windows 7 and works like a charm, except the direct click, which is odd. Is there a way to perform a “real” click, just right of the box?, because I only see an indicator where my mousecursor is when I push the button that is set for direct click. Clicking in Chrome with the ext works fine though, but it doesn’t work in traditional window enviroment. (for instance opening application by clicking on a shortcut on the desktop.)
update: It seems that it isn’t consistent. I can for instance click icons on the taskbar, and they will open. However I can’t open apps by clicking on icons on the desktop. Also clicking on minimizing/closing windows doesnt work. And I can see from the indicator I click while my gaze is exactly on it…10/07/2014 at 16:33 #1332Erland [Tobii]Participant
You are right that this is currently not consistent. The direct click only works on clickable items that have enabled the EyeX direct click. Using the SDK you can use activatable interactors to make buttons and links clickable in your own app.
To make the EyeX direct click more readily available, we are also mapping different existing applications to use the EyeX direct click. With our EyeX for Windows trial product that is currently included in the EyeX engine download, we are only just starting to provide such mappings for Chrome and a handful of Windows 8 apps. Just so you can get a feel for how it works. Glad to hear you like it where it works! But sorry that we have not enabled it everywhere just yet.
We are working hard to make the overall experience more consistent, and there are some pretty exciting things coming up in a not too distant future.
