EyeR featuring Virtual Remote software enables you to add infrared (IR) functionality to any tablet, laptop or desktop computer for control of infrared enabled devices in your surroundings.
EyeR gives you the power to interact with your environment: Use your eyes to control doors, lights, beds, air conditioners, telephones, TVs, DVD players, stereos, toys and more, even from across the room. To ensure an optimal coverage, EyeR has a minimum range of 13 feet.
EyeR is compatible with all Tobii Dynavox eye trackers, so there is no limitation of adding IR functionality to your device. Virtual Remote software is already included. Virtual Remote can be accessed through touch, as well as eye tracking, which makes it a flexible solution for many.
For optimal performance, the Tobii Dynavox EyeR should be connected directly to an USB port on the device and not through an USB splitter. EyeR is included in the product PCEye Plus eye tracker.

EyeR is a uniquely designed, dedicated IR dongle made for use with eye tracking that enables environmental control by simply plugging it into a computer’s USB port. It gives you the ability to control doors, lights, beds, air conditioners, telephones, TVs, DVD players, stereos, toys and more by yourself. EyeR and Virtual Remote software are compatible with Windows Control and Gaze Point. With these, you can use EyeR together with all our modern peripheral eye trackers – PCEye Go, Explore, Mini & Plus.
To ensure an optimal coverage, EyeR has a range of more than 4 meters. So you can take control of your own home and entertainment. Choose your favorite TV program, let your music band play as loud as you want and enjoy toys like remote controlled cars – even from across the room.
All elements of the EyeR including the USB connector, flexible arm, and the IR component are quality tested. Because the EyeR can be rotated 360o, once adjusted, it can hold its position even if it’s upside down, or fitted snuggly around corners. This flexibility in addition to a 180o signal emission ensures that the IR signals are directed perfectly at the device for optimal communication and control.
Setting up EyeR is easy. After plugging the EyeR dongle into the computer’s USB port, you can jump right into using the included software Virtual Remote to start programming.
Virtual Remote is a software that provides two pathways to setting up an IR connection:
EyeR comes preprogrammed with many popular IR codes, allowing you to create “Virtual Remotes” and take control of devices in your home or office, and there is an extensive list of device brands that can be chosen. Once a brand is selected, all matching remotes are displayed so that you can find the best one. Additionally, the remote can still be edited afterward.
You can start with a pre-filled layout, which consists of un-programmed buttons. These buttons can now be programmed individually according to your preferences. After the initial setup, every button can still be edited and changed. Switching between different remote controls is easy, so you always have direct access to your programmed IR remotes.
