Tobii Declares 2015 ‘Year of Consumer Eye Tracking’ at International CES

STOCKHOLM & LAS VEGAS— Dec. 29, 2014 — Tobii Tech, the global leader in eye tracking, will showcase how pioneering consumers will take eye-tracking technology out of the lab and into their daily lives in 2015. From the world’s first consumer eye tracker developed in partnership with premier gaming gear brand SteelSeries to the first steps in eye-tracking wearables, Tobii will give a first glimpse into what is waiting for consumers in the coming months. Visit Tobii during CES in Las Vegas at Tech West Sands Booth No.71837, Jan. 6-9.

“2015 will be the year that eye-tracking makes first entry into consumer markets and consumers have their first tangible experiences with real eye-tracking products in the wild — first with gaming, then with ergonomics and eventually general computer use,” said Oscar Werner, president of Tobii Tech. “We are well-poised to bring new products to market, not only as Tobii, but also with numerous world-class partners in these industries. We are thrilled about moving from prototypes to real products, games and apps.” 

Attendees will be among the first to try the following products, exclusively at the Tobii booth:

  • SteelSeries Sentry – Shipping January 2015, the world’s first gaming eye tracker for streamers, e-sports competitors and those seeking to enhance their game strategy, will be shown only at the Tobii booth, where participants can get their first real demonstrations of how eye-tracking will revolutionize gaming. A 2015 CES Innovations Honoree, the Sentry peripheral is now available for pre-order at steelseries.com/sentry.

o   Watch popular streamers and Sentry users CEH9 and Wagamama play live, Jan. 6-7, at the Tobii booth and on Twitch.

  • Tobii Glasses 2 – See Tobii’s second-generation wearable eye tracker in action. Already shipping for research customers, Tobii is now working with industry-leading partners in both augmented and virtual reality to integrate the world’s smallest eye-tracking technology into their wearables for gaming augmentation, training and professional applications. The Tobii Glasses 2 SDK will also debut in Q2 2015, allowing developers to start building eye-tracking applications for Glasses 2 as well as other third-party wearables.
  • Pizza Hut Subconscious Menu – This playful use of eye tracking in restaurant retail technology is already making big waves. Attendees will also have the opportunity to dig into their subconscious and see what they are really craving on their pizza.  

“When Tobii says ‘2015 is the year for consumer eye tracking,’ we couldn’t agree more,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “From the overwhelming demand for the Sentry, to the comments from top streamers, journalists and gaming pros about eye tracking’s impact on future consumer devices, it is obvious that both SteelSeries and Tobii are more than ready to deliver in 2015.”

Tobii Arcade: Eye-tracking content also becomes a reality

Eye-tracking hardware is only half the story. Since CES 2014, developers from all over the world have joined Tobii in realizing great content for upcoming consumer eye trackers. Launching at CES Unveiled, Tobii Arcade will be the world’s first showcase of eye-tracking apps built with eye tracking in mind as a primary input.

With the following applications for demo at CES, attendees will also have the opportunity to explore various ways eye tracking will humanize user interfaces:

  • Tobii Game Analyzer – A tool for competitive gamers to gain completely new insights into the game. Get stats about what is seen and processed during a game and find the keys to winning behavior in a player’s style. Ships with SteelSeries Sentry.
  • Tobii EyeX Interactions – A Windows add-on that enables eye gaze as an additional input, creating a revolutionary experience with users able to wake the computer with a glance and “warp” the mouse to where they are looking.
  • Son of Nor by stillalive studios – Play an action-adventure game with players fighting enemies by using magical abilities with their eyes: telekinesis, terraforming powers and spell casting. Experience how eye tracking gives you a “third hand” and makes it possible to multitask by controlling your character and aiming at your enemies at the same time. You can simultaneously run in one direction and aim in another, just like in real life.
  • Overwolf Overlay – This application adds a rich layer of eye-tracking functionality to the Overwolf engine so gamers can gain insights, develop better strategies and increase the level of entertainment for their streaming audience.

This is only a small portion of the games and apps that will soon be made available on Tobii Arcade. 2015 will also witness strong growth in eye-tracking content from the Tobii developer community, both from indie developers and globally recognized studios,” said Werner. “We will promote successful apps heavily, so we encourage developers to innovate and start creating — now — eye-tracking content that will soon impact consumers’ everyday lives.”

Members of the media can be some of the first to demo these products at Booth No. 1 during Unveiled, the official media event of CES, Jan. 4 from 4-7 p.m.

ALL-NEW COUNTER LOGIC GAMING RAZER BLACKWIDOW KEYBOARD RELEASED

One of the world’s premier eSports teams gets custom-branded Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth keyboard to pair with exclusive Razer mouse

 

For Release on Aug. 19, 2014:

 

CARLSBAD, Calif. – Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, along with Counter Logic Gaming (CLG), a longtime eSports partner and premier North American organization, announced the launch of the new Counter Logic Gaming Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth keyboard.

 

The CLG BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth gaming keyboard continues to give CLG players and fans a customized gaming setup. Late last year, Razer unveiled a limited edition CLG version of its best-selling DeathAdder mouse in the team’s iconic black and white colors. The new keyboard is wrapped in a familiar finish. The team’s logo is imprinted onto a unique two-tone black and white body and the keys are illuminated in CLG’s white coloring.

 

 

“CLG is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of professional gaming in North America and the world,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “The new CLG BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth keyboard features the only unobtrusive mechanical switch that was specifically designed for gaming.”

 

While traditional mechanical switches were originally designed for typing, the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches have been designed and engineered from the ground up for gaming. After extensive research, Razer’s multi-award winning engineers identified the optimal actuation distance for a gaming switch to a fraction of a millimeter and reduced the distance between the actuation and reset point by almost half to allow for faster, more precise gaming commands when compared to standard mechanical switches. Furthermore, the all-new Razer Mechanical Switches are made using an ultra-precise manufacturing technique that, along with gold plated contact points, result in a projected lifespan of up to 60 million key strokes.

 

These switches were tested extensively by the world’s most demanding eSports athletes from Team Razer, including CLG pros, who validated the new Razer Mechanical Switch in some of the most intense professional gaming tournaments.

 

“We’re really happy to be working with Razer, a company that pioneered the gaming peripheral category, on our custom-branded gear for our players and fans,” says George “HotshotGG” Georgallidis, CLG co-founder and President. “We’re proud to extend our ongoing partnership that will result in giving our players and fans the best gaming gear on the planet.”

 

 

Razer made history with eSports legends since the early days of eSports and has been integral to the growth and development of the competitive electronic gaming generally. The brand’s work has leading the way in partnerships, business development and product evaluation in the gaming industry. For more information on Team Razer and its elite eSports athletes, visit http://www.razerzone.com/team

 

Razer’s reputation in the gaming space has led to licensed products along the lines of CLG’s range of peripherals. Game publishers and eSports organizations alike are using Razer’s award-winning technology. For more information, check outhttp://www.razerzone.com/licensed-and-team-peripherals.

Razer Introduces the Blade Pro—Designed For Work and For Play

The Razer Blade Pro: 17-inch HD Screen, Intel Quad Core i7, NVIDIA GTX 765M; comes with built-in professional-grade SBUI applications for creative professionals

 

For Immediate Release:

SAN FRANCISCO – May 30, 2013  Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced the Blade Pro, the latest evolution of its award-winning 17-inch gaming laptop. Powered by a future 4th gen Intel® Core™ processor, next generation NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 765M graphics and groundbreaking storage performance, the new Blade Pro is faster and more powerful than ever before.

 

“With the Razer Blade Pro, we’ve designed a gaming laptop for work and for play—appealing to on-the-go hardcore gamers, game developers, creative artists and aspiring video professionals,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “The Razer Blade Pro can flawlessly run the most popular creative software applications, and is powerful enough to run the most graphically intensive games on the market today.”

 

Razer’s designers and engineers refined every inner component to increase performance, while staying true to portability. At 0.88 inches thin and weighing 6.5 pounds, the Blade Pro is the most portable 17-inch gaming laptop in its class. Every detail is sleek, slim and light, all the way down to the compact power supply, making the Blade Pro the best choice for gaming performance and creative work on-the-go.

 

The Blade Pro, the third iteration of Razer’s ground-breaking, ultra-portable laptop, features a 47-watt Intel chip, 10 watts more than the last 17-inch Razer Blade and the most powerful CPU ever fitted into a Razer system for increased professional performance. The latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU is also included. All of this is packed into the thinnest and lightest form factor in the 17-inch laptop class. The Blade Pro comes with Dolby® Home Theatre® v4, featuring immersive audio quality that is custom-tuned to each Razer laptop to deliver a cinematic sound experience. All of this is topped-off with gaming-grade peripherals built right in, such as Razer Synapse 2.0, a fully programmable anti-ghosting keyboard with adjustable backlight and an ultra-sensitive track pad.

 

“Innovation is happening across the PC industry, and what Razer has done with the Blade Pro is groundbreaking,” says Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Mobile Client Platforms. “Utilizing a future 4th gen Intel Core processor, the Razer Blade Pro delivers top-class gaming and professional performance in a very portable form factor.”
“The Razer Blade Pro packs extreme performance in an ultra-portable form factor,” says Rene Haas, vice president and general manager of notebook GPUs at NVIDIA. “Thanks in part to the performance-per-watt efficiency of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs, the new Razer Blade Pro is incredibly thin for a 17-inch gaming laptop.”

 

At the heart of the Blade Pro is a full-HD 17-inch LED display linked in combination with the Switchblade User Interface (SBUI), allowing users to take advantage of tools and creative possibilities at their fingertips. Driven by 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys, a revolutionary LCD track pad and professional-grade and game apps, users can work harder and play harder. Razer’s SBUI now includes several new, professional-grade apps and a wide array of new tools available at no charge, including programs like Adobe Photoshop® and Adobe Premiere® Pro, Maya®, GIMP and more.

 

The Razer Blade Pro also features 8 GB of fast 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and now comes standard with 128 GB of total solid-stage storage, with optional 256 GB and 512 GB SSDs. With solid-state storage technology, gamers will now experience up to four-times the performance of a traditional 5400-rpm notebook hard drive.

Razer is also offering a new creative professional pricing program, allowing design students, game developers, development staff, Kickstarter partners and others to purchase Razer products, including the Blade Pro, at special prices. Selected developers and partners are now listed at www.razerzone.com/creativepro. Those not listed are encouraged to fill out an application on the page for a chance to be included in the program.
