Eye Tracking VS Voice Control - Which is better for movement in VR?

December 13, 2019

Recently, a caring mother named Andreas asked me if there are any VR headsets that one can play without using hand controllers. She said she was thinking of buying a VR headset for her son, but that he has very limited movement and strength due to spinal muscular atrophy.

 

I responded with some good news, some bad news, and some encouraging news.

 

THE GOOD NEWS

There is a headset by HTC Vive called the “Pro EYE” that allows control via eye tracking, and therefore doesn’t require controllers. It’s available from vive.com or amazon, and many big retailers.

 

 Tobii Eyetracking software is a leading developer of eye tracking
