    Would the software be able to track more than just the reflection off eyes? I.e. could it additionally track IR emitters and/or 3M reflective tape?

    Thinking along the lines of TrackIR equivalent functionality allowing 6DOF head tracking in addition to eye tracking. Working together may be more natural with the head driving course movement and the eyes finer distinction.

    From a use in-game perspective you could have head tracking for views with eye tracking controlling a “focus” cursor, e.g. think Flight Simulator where your head controls 6DOF views with your eyes focussing attention on controls to activate/command etc. with, perhaps, additional activity controlled by left/right eyes blinks. E.g. could focus on a control, left eye (long) blink for equivalent of left mouse click, right eye blink for right.

    Hi @magicman,

    Thanks for your suggestion, however what you suggest would require a significant overhaul of the tracking algorithms implemented in our Tobii eye trackers so is not likely to be implemented at any point in the near future.
