StarVR Unveils Advanced Virtual Reality Headset with Integrated Tobii Eye Tracking



STOCKHOLM, Aug. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the annual Siggraph Conference, StarVR unveiled its upcoming StarVR® One virtual reality headset, featuring advanced optics, integrated eye tracking, industry-leading field of view, and sophisticated rendering technology.

"Over the last few years, Tobii has shown that integrated eye tracking is a foundational technology for next generation VR devices," said Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii. "The StarVR One headset represents an important proof point for the many ways that eye tracking fundamentally leads to enhanced experiences."

In September of 2015, Tobii and Starbreeze announced a VR development collaboration. Due to that successful collaboration, the StarVR One headset will include seamless and industry-leading eye-tracking technology, enhancing the device with capabilities to support dynamic foveated rendering, and automatic interpupillary distance (IPD) measurement.

In addition to enhancing the device, eye tracking will create better user experiences by enabling interactions in virtual reality that streamline the user interface, emulate true hand-eye coordination, and allow expressive eye contact. For more information on how eye tracking creates better devices and better experiences, visit the Tobii website.

Tobii's scope of delivery for the StarVR One headset includes the Tobii EyeChip and licenses for Tobii's system design, IP and software. Information about product availability, pricing, and order volume commitment is not yet available.

Additional information and specifications for the new StarVR One headset can be found on the company's web page www.starvr.com.
