Over the past few months we’ve been implementing Tobii EyeX technology into The Battle of Sol. Today we’re proud to announce that the integration phase is complete and the game now fully supports this amzing technology.
What is EyeX you might ask?
You can find more info here.
How does The Battle of Sol support EyeX?
It really augments and improves the combat experience by:
- We support infinitescreen which allows players to look around the cockpit by simply looking at the edges of the screen.
- We support CleanUI which is a fancy way of saying the UI will slowly fade out when you’re not gazing directly at it.
- We support Eye targeting . Simply press the EyeX key and you will instantly target any ship you’re gazing at.
To be honest I was skeptical when I first heard about the technology but after using it for the first time I was instantly sold. It really feels like the future when you can use your eyes to interact with your PC. In fact, I liked the technology so much I decided to get another for my laptop!
If you’re at GDC next month please stop by the Tobii booth to check out the tech! We’ll be there demonstrating a couple of games that use it.
