I’m considering buying the Tobii EyeX so I could develop with it. I have a few questions.
1. Can Tobii EyeX be used to track eye movement over several monitors? (3 in my case.)
2. I can only program in Python. I don’t know how to program in C or any other language. Will it be possible to program the Tobii EyeX completely in Python?
3. I want to build a mouse-like program so I could click without touching the mouse. Has something like this been done? (I imagine it has, the question is whether I’d like the interface, otherwise I’d build my own.) If there’s a video I’d like to see it.
Thanks for your help,

Just bumping this thread, hoping that someone could answer my questions.

Let me answer questions 1 and 2 for you.
1) The Tobii EyeX Controller eye tracker can track the user’s eye gaze on screen sizes up to 27″ when the eye tracker is mounted centrally on the screen plane, and the user’s eyes are at about an arm’s length distance from the eye tracker. The precision and accuracy of the eye-gaze tracking drops notably outside this screen size. The Tobii EyeX Engine runtime, that handles the screen setup and user calibration, currently only works for the eye tracker to be used with one monitor at the time.
2) There is no EyeX SDK for Python.
For the third question, I’ve seen some program or another like that mentioned around the forum. Try search the forum for it (search box on the main forum page).15/09/2015 at 15:27 #3483
Thanks Jenny! Unfortunately this rules out the device for me 🙁
If the answers to 1 and 2 ever change, it could be relevant for me again.
