The PCEye Plus is the next generation peripheral eye tracker that provides the most efficient and ergonomic way to access your world. By combining advanced eye tracking technology, speech recognition, switch and IR control, the PCEye Plus enables you to interact with your computer and surrounding environment seamlessly. Together, these features empower you to interact with your computer like never before. This level of independence is also the key focus of our software, which is built to support you on your journey and evolve with you as you grow.
The PCEye Plus uses the same development platform that enables Tobii Dynavox hardware to work across our entire software portfolio, allowing you the freedom to take it anywhere. Bringing you peace of mind that you will have the right equipment for moving across software platforms.
Get started quickly with Gaze Point and Gaze Viewer to learn and explore eye tracking, then measure your progress and evaluate potential growth in new areas like Windows Control or Communicator. The PCEye Plus can take you from simple drawing actions such as splat, paint, draw and play to full computer access with Windows Control. Because it integrates with all our software, the PCEye Plus meets you exactly where you are and takes you where you want to go.
The PCEye Plus allows you to access all the functions of your computer using only your eyes, ultimately giving 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.
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 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.
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.
We have streamlined our Windows Control software to give you a consistent experience without confusion. 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, giving you total control.
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.

2 Head 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.
3For 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.
4The 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.
5The "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.
