SteelSeries CES 2015: The Future is Now

/ Jan 5th, 2015 No Comments

SteelSeries Sentry

They say CES is the place where the future is born. If that is true, then it is safe to say SteelSeries is the father of future gaming tech. Gaming Illustrated got a chance to meet up with the company at a pre-CES 2015 event in Las Vegas, and we were blow away by what we saw. SteelSeries showed off the highly anticipated Sentry Eye Tracker along with the new Apex M800 Gaming Keyboard.

SteelSeries Sentry Eye Tracker

There are few times when we are left speechless when it comes to tech, but the Sentry Eye Tracker takes the cake. In order to truly grasp the significance it will have on the gaming industry, it must be witnessed firsthand. The device follows users’ eye movements and keeps track of where users look on a computer monitor.
 

Sentry Eye Tracker

The Sentry will record where your eyes are and for how long.

The device takes about 3-5 mintutes to set up. Users can program multipe profiles in order for different people to use the same Sentry, and the possiblites are endless. For instance, a streamer will be able to let viewers know where they are looking and for how long using the device’s heat-mapping feature. This could allow users to study what the audience is looking at on screen and for how often, then adapt to the viewers.

Sentry owners will also be able to look at their own heat maps and compare them to their friends. This could greatly impact competition in titles such as Counter-Strike and League of Legends, as teams will be able to review footage and make adjustments.

Streamers can show their viewers exactly what they are viewing on screen. It will bring streamers that much closer to their audience, and allow for much deeper interaction. If you like creating montages, the Sentry will push you to the top of YouTube. Users will be able to show footage of not just headshots, but no-scope, no-look headshots. The first player to look at the ammo counter while no-scope killing an enemy — insta-fame.

The Sentry Eye Tracker is available now for $199.99. Developers are already working on creating games with full integration for the device (eye-tracking Pong or airhockey anybody?).

SteelSeries Apex M800 Gaming Keyboard

CES 2015 is just getting underway, but the Sentry is already the show’s most impressive piece of tech. However, that is not the only great product SteelSeries brought to the event. The company also displayed the new Apex M800 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.

The Apex M800 is a beauty of a keyboard, with individual backlit, clicky-yet-silent keys. The ultra-responsive gaming keyboard features an oversized space bar and newly-designed switches. Of course, the keyboard boasts customizable options with various possible combinations.

Although CES 2015 has plenty to offer before the show closes, SteelSeries can already be declared one of the show’s biggest winners. Stay tuned to Gaming Illustrated for more information regarding SteelSeries from CES 2015.
