SteelSeries Announces the Sentry Eye Tracker

/ Jul 3rd, 2014 No Comments

At this year’s E3 this year, SteelSeries announced their new eye tracking peripheral designed for PC gamers to gain new insight into how they play. Developed in a partnership with Tobii Technology, the Sentry Eye Tracker works in conjunction with the SteelSeries Engine software suite to give players an overlay displaying how long and how often the player’s eyes are going to a specific location on screen. This is all in the pursuit to improve and ultimately win during competitive play.

SteelSeries is working with professional gamers in a variety of the most popular games to establish top-performance benchmarks for consumers to compare their own play with once the Sentry is released. Not only will users be able to view their data alongside the pros, but will be able to see what areas of the screen the professionals pay attention to most. This will enable players to see how the pros react to certain events during gameplay.

With the ability to track eye movement, the Sentry is also capable of using eye movement for in-game control in addition to its data gathering and analysis capabilities.

The SteelSeries Sentry Eye Tracker is due for release later this year.

Quick Take

We had an opportunity to talk with SteelSeries about their goals with the Sentry and its application in competitive gaming and video streaming environments. The easy software integration and overlays should give invaluable insight into how players of all skill levels analyze the visual data displayed at any given time during play, as well as the ability to compare one’s own data to a professional’s.
