Tobii Dynavox, the global leader in Assistive Technology for communication, announced today the release of the EyeMobile Plus, an eye tracker built-in to an advanced Windows tablet bracket. The EyeMobile Plus combines the best in eye tracking, high quality speakers, speech recognition, switch access, and infrared (IR) control into one solution. EyeMobile Plus provides individuals with physical and mobility challenges, such as spinal cord injuries or ALS, all the necessary tools to communicate effectively and empowers them to access mobile computing.
“With the advancement of PC tablets, our users have been seeking more portable eye tracking solutions” said Fredrik Ruben, President of Tobii Dynavox. “We’ve responded by introducing the most advanced eye tracking technology, combined with a sleek, fully-integrated all-in-one bracket for Windows tablets. With the EyeMobile Plus we can also address markets where price today is an obstacle for users to get access to communication and computer accessibility. The product is strategically important as it redefines today’s market for eye-gaze enabled communication.”
With the EyeMobile Plus, users can navigate their Windows tablet, control and access apps, internet, social media, games, the Microsoft Office suite and more. The combination of integrated hardware features, easy-to-use software, and lightweight portability makes the EyeMobile Plus an ideal tablet solution for communication and computer access, ultimately giving users greater personal freedom and levels of independence.
The EyeMobile Plus comes with a built-in eye tracker, powerful speakers that make sure users will be heard loud and clear, two switch ports for scanning, an advanced microphone optimized for speech control and IR for environmental controls. It can be purchased with a Microsoft Surface Pro or be paired with comparable Windows tablets, based on an individual’s preference and style. In addition, EyeMobile Plus will sustain power with internal batteries for 9+ hours and only draw from the tablet once exhausted, ensuring anxiety-free power when communicating on the go.
The EyeMobile Plus comes with the Windows Control software to provide full gaze-enabled control and access to computer functionality. Other Tobii Dynavox Windows based software like Communicator 5 can be added on to provide a fully-fledged Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) solution.
