Tobii Technology AB: 4tiitoo and Tobii Expand Gaming Experience With Gaze-enabled Demo of Minecraft

Tobii Technology (http://www.tobii.com/en/group), the global leader in eye tracking and gaze interaction, together with 4tiitoo (http://www.4tiitoo.com), a pioneer in developing natural user experience-focused software solutions, today announced the exciting result of a joint development project: a demo version of the computer game Minecraft that allows gamers to use their eye gaze in the game play. The demo will be on display at the Intel booth at Minecon (http://minecon.mojang.com/), the official Minecraft event, Nov. 24-25 at the Disneyland Resort, Paris.

“Through the implementation of natural user interaction, particularly gaze, we are able to push the physical game controls to the background, allowing players to experience an immersive, fun and unparalleled gaming environment,” said Tore Meyer, CEO of 4tiitoo, “We are excited about the opportunity to show gamers the new possibilities of our NUIA® SDK, and we are looking forward to applying our technology to numerous applications in the near future.”

Built on 4tiitoo’s NUIA® SDK, Minecraft and other similar gaming applications can be developed and deployed very quickly and efficiently using some of the most cutting-edge and emerging interaction modalities. The gaze-enabled (http://www.tobii.com/en/gaze-interaction/global/Gaze-Interaction-fields-of-use/gaze-interaction-in-gaming/) Minecraft demo, which uses Tobii’s award-winning eye-tracking technology, adds an additional layer of interaction to the game, allowing players to engage with more game elements within their field of vision.

“As Tobii expands its range of eye-tracking applications in the consumer electronics industry, from personal computing to vehicles, we seek partners that value the enhanced user experience that gaze brings to consumers,” said Henrik Eskilsson, CEO at Tobii Technology. “With this demo, 4tiitoo is demonstrating its commitment to the consumer by creating a truly natural user experience, taking a very exciting step forward for the gaming industry.”

With Tobii’s gaze interaction development kit, developers can quickly get started exploring this new modality and bringing a new, exciting user experience to their products. By joining Tobii’s partner program (http://www.tobii.com/en/gaze-interaction/global/partner/tobii-gaze-interaction-partner-program/), developers get access to the Tobii Gaze Interaction SDK, hardware eye tracker, and training, as well as other elements needed to get started developing gaze-enabled software.

In addition to Minecon, the Minecraft demo will be on display at the Tobii booth (No. 35266) during the 2013 International CES (http://www.tobii.com/en/eye-tracking-integration/global/news-and-events/calendar/international-ces-2013/) in Las Vegas, Nev., Jan. 8-11,  2013.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
