Tobii & SeeFront Partner On Eye-Controlled Arcade Game

Category: GDC
HAMBURG, GERMANY — Tobii Technology (, which focuses on eye-tracking and gaze interaction, and SeeFront (, a developer of proprietary glasses-free 3D technology, have teamed up to develop a glasses-free 3D version of an eye-controlled arcade game. Tobii EyeAsteroids was originally introduced last fall at Dave & Buster's in New York City. Tobii EyeAsteroids in 3D is being showcased at the Tobii booth at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany this week.

"Eye tracking is an essential component of our glasses-free 3D display technology," explains Christoph Grossmann, founder and CEO of SeeFront, based in Hamburg. 

"Adding gaze control to natural 3D viewing combines two highly innovative technologies for a unique user experience. Aside from gaze-controlled 3D gaming - which is great fun - additional applications of this innovative dual technology include use in medical, geographical and automotive devices." 

With SeeFront's glasses-free 3D and accurate gaze tracking from Tobii's technology, EyeAsteroids now enables users to save the Earth from impending asteroid destruction by using their eyes in a completely immersive 3D experience. "Solutions for glasses-free 3D require very accurate and robust information about the position of a user's eyes at all times," notes Henrik Eskilsson, CEO of Tobii Technology. 

"We're excited to be partnering with SeeFront to use Tobii's eye-tracking technology to make high fidelity glasses-free 3D a reality. We expect to see high-volume applications using Tobii's gaze and eye position technology in many other industries very soon."
