Today I received The Eye Tribe Development Kit. This is one of the upcoming technologies that will allow you to interact with computers via eye manipulation. The technology is in its early stages, but you bet you will be hearing more about it in the coming years. The competitor, Tobii, seems to be a little behind. Below are images of the development kit.
A fairly long USB 3.0 cable.
A mini tripod.
The Eye Tribe unit. The front side is dark.
The USB 3.0 port.
A comparison with my Logitech mouse. I was expecting the Eye Tribe to be larger than what it actually is.
In the coming months, if time permits, I'll begin programming some small apps and may post some videos. Until then you can check The Eye Tribe Tracker for more info.
Error: Invalid device firmware, upgrade required
If you bought the initial batch of Eyetribe devices then only the earlier software will work. If you try to use new software in the older Eyetribe units then you are going to get an error message. As I understand, based on reading forum entries, there is no easy way to update the firmware on those earlier devices (the device may become bricked).
Software version and firmware version must be compatible.
