Tobii will be the eye tracking technology provider for PlayStation VR2
Tobii has announced that it will provide eye-tracking technology for Sony’s upcoming PlayStation VR2.
“PlayStation VR2 sets a new benchmark for immersive virtual reality (VR) entertainment and will allow millions of users around the world to experience the power of eye tracking,” said Anand Srivatsa, CEO of Tobii.
“Our partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is a continued validation of Tobii’s cutting-edge technology capabilities to deliver cutting-edge solutions at mass market scale.”
The company said revenue from this deal with Sony is expected to account for more than 10% of its revenue in 2022.
Sony officially announced its latest foray into the world of virtual reality in 2021, then at CES 2022 unveiled its new VR2 headset and PlayStation VR2 Sense controller specs. The gadget promises fans a more immersive gaming experience with improved performance and interactivity compared to its predecessor.
The PlayStation VR2 will feature OLED displays capable of 4K visuals and, of course, eye-tracking technology. Eye tracking means you can look in a specific direction to act as additional input.
