Experience the most efficient and ergonomic way to access your computer with assistive technology. Combine Eye tracking, Dictation, Switch and IR in one product – PCEye Plus with EyeR.
These various options empower you to individually create the most efficient way of computer interaction. This empowerment and independence is also the key element in our software, which is built to support you on your journey and evolve with you as you grow.
If you're a beginner, you might want to start with Gaze Point to learn and explore eye tracking. Measure the progress and cognitive ability to evaluate potential growth with Gaze Viewer. Continue into new levels of computer access with Windows Control, and if you need AAC, add Communicator 5 or Snap + Core First. The same PCEye Plus can take you from splat, smudge, paint, play and draw to full computer access with Windows Control. One hardware that meets you exactly where you are and takes you where you want to go.
The PCEye Plus allows you to use all the functions of your computer, using only your eyes. Ultimately, the PCEye Plus gives you greater personal freedom and independence.
Advanced speech recognition
To further enhance the process of creating spreadsheets and documents with eye tracking, verbal access users can now use speech recognition to dictate. When your voice is heard clearly, dictation is the fastest way to convert spoken word into written text. The PCEye Plus features a high-quality 4-array microphone system integrated into the eye tracker to assure it picks up every word. Providing you with two extremely useful interaction methods you can freely switch between to suit your needs.
Greater precision with switch control
The PCEye Plus has an integrated switch port on the device, so you always have your switch connection exactly where you need it. Combining eye tracking and switch gives you the power to control your computer more intentionally and efficiently. With the “sticky left click” the mouse cursor will follow your eyes continuously, and whenever you hit the switch, a left click is performed. Our software Windows Control is designed for switch and the possibility for Switch Scanning, which enables more intentional eye tracking, for greater control and precision.
High precision and accuracy
The PCEye Plus, together with the zoom functionality of Windows Control, allows you to consistently hit even the smallest targets on the screen with almost pixel precision.
Head movement compensation
Move freely within the trackbox while maintaining superior precision and accuracy. Should you move outside of the trackbox, the PCEye Plus will quickly find your eyes again and continue to track them.
The trackbox, which is the imaginary volume within which you can move your head without losing accuracy or interrupting the eye tracking session, is among the largest on the market. The large size gives you the freedom to sit or lie down comfortably while maintaining eye tracking performance.
The PCEye Plus provides high-quality tracking results for over 95% of users*, compared to any other system, regardless of most lighting conditions, eye color, or if you are wearing contacts or glasses.
The robust design of the eye tracker combined with software developed specifically with Microsoft Windows in mind, makes the user experience seamless and keeps you prepared for the latest advancements in consumer electronics.
Other benefits of the design include magnesium backing for optimal heat distribution and weight reduction, emphasized microphone slot, and a sleek silver/black color theme that matches the Tobii Dynavox product family.
Biometric security has never been this seamless. Automatically sign in to Windows 10 by using your eye tracker with the next generation Windows Control as a Windows Hello camera. If your Windows 10 computer is not set to fully go to sleep, you can always unlock the screen with your presence and Windows Hello. This is a Windows 10 only feature. See the PCEye Plus manual for how to set it up.
The PCEye Plus fits perfectly on most laptop, and desktop monitors with an excellent performance on up to 27’’ screens and processing take place on the PCEye Plus, enabling the usage of old and low-performance PCs. Giving you the ability to adapt it to your current computer quickly without additional cost. The 30 inch USB 2 cable and light and slim design of the eye tracker also provide a broad range of setup possibilities.
The PCEye Plus comes with a uniquely designed EyeR dongle made for use with eye tracking, that opens the door to IR without the need for any additional equipment. This unlocks the entire range of IR including the control of sensory rooms, toys, TVs and smart home functions. To use it, simply connect the dongle via USB to your computer or laptop, direct the IR signal at the intended device and take control.
All elements of the EyeR like the USB connector, the flexible arm and the IR component are quality tested. The IR signal is emitted through the glass cover at a 180-degree angle. The small and lightweight IR dongle is extremely flexible and can be rotated 360 degrees. Once adjusted, the EyeR holds its position, so it can hang upside down, stand still and fit snuggly around corners. This flexibility ensures that the IR signals are directed perfectly at the device for optimal communication and control.
Simply plug it into your computer’s USB port, and you can jump right into the included Virtual Remote software. Virtual Remote provides pre-programmed and manual options for setting up an IR connection, so you can start programming quickly.
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.
Once chosen and set-up, the remote can still be edited afterwards.
Grow your individual path without the need to change hardware. Start with Gaze Point and Gaze Viewer to learn and explore eye tracking. Measure the progress and cognitive ability to evaluate potential growth into new regions like Windows Control and Communicator 5. The same PCEye Plus can take you from splat, smudge, paint, play and draw to full computer access with Windows Control. One hardware that meets you exactly where you are and takes you where you want to go.
We have streamlined our Windows Control software to give you a consistent experience with no room for confusion and no chance to get stuck. All settings and
features in Windows Control are gaze enabled. This means you have the ability to calibrate as well as change dwell time, users, languages, input methodology and much more. Fully gaze enabled settings means full control for you.
Windows Control makes it possible to control your desktop, or any other application, through a simple, two-step process that reduces the risk of unwanted clicks. All you have to do is select the desired task that you want to perform in the taskbar, like a double click, then look at the desired area or icon on the screen where you want to execute the task.
Gaze Point is our entry level eye tracking software that opens up the wonderful world of gaze interaction to everyone. Together with Gaze Viewer, inexperienced users get a simple and efficient way to learn and document how to use eye tracking and gaze interaction.
Combined with one of our eye trackers, Gaze Point lets you move the mouse pointer and perform left mouse clicks.
The controller window gives you direct access to:

2 Track box describes the space in front of the eye tracker where the user must have at least one eye to get gaze data. The eye tracker is at a 20° angle looking upward from below the screen.
3 For larger than recommended screens, the limiting parameter is the quality of the gaze accuracy at the upper corners of the screen when the user sits close to the screen.
4 The degree-of-accuracy and precision over percentage-of-population numbers result from extensive testing across representatives of the whole population. We have made use of hundreds of thousands of diagnostic images and performed tests on approximately 800 individuals with different conditions, vision, ethnicities, everyday dust, smudges or blemishes around their eyes, with eyes out of focus, etc. This has resulted in a much more robust and high performance eye tracking experience and a much more realistic representation of true performance across the whole population, not just in a mathematically "ideal" scenario.
5 The "ideal" degree numbers are the previous standard of measuring accuracy and precision, both previously from Tobii and presently from all eye tracking competitors. Though "ideal" numbers are useful to get a general feel about comparative quality and performance, they are not applicable to real world usage in the same way as quantitative degree-of-accuracy and precision over percentage-of-population numbers based on extensive testing across representatives of the whole population.
