Tobii Eye Tracking debuts in eSports
We’ve been working on making this a reality for quite some time, and together with Alienware and ELEAGUE we’re now making our debut in eSports.
Tobii Eye Tracking is featured in ELEAGUE which began on Friday, September 8 at 6 PM ET in Atlanta, GA.
Eye Tracking in eSports will make it possible for the audience to see where the players have been looking while playing which results in the viewers getting a better insight into the match. Personally, I’m looking forward to turning my most commonly used match comment “How, where, what?” into “Ohhh!”.
For ELEAGUE, one player from each team will be using our application Streaming Gaze Overlay which creates a gaze circle that shows the viewers where the player is looking. The gaze circle will not be displayed for the player and it will only be displayed to the viewers during the replay of highlights so it doesn’t ruin the raw beauty of live footage.

We hope to give all the viewers of ELEAGUE a better understanding of the players. We would love to hear your comments about what you think so don’t hesitate to share them with us on Discord.

To find out more about the use of eye tracking in eSports, get some more insight on how it all went down at ELEAGUE with Alienware.
A few days ago we did a soft launch of our latest project Alienware Academy which we’ve been working on together with Alienware during the summer through sun and rain.
A while back we launched an application called Game Analyzer but we felt that the timing wasn’t right so it was discontinued. Now we’re picking up the pieces and creating something better that fits the needs of players today together with Alienware.
Alienware Academy will be a Game Analyzer platform which can analyze your performance when you play which could potentially make you a better player. The platform will support some of the biggest competitive game titles out there, but we’re not naming them as of yet so keep an eye out for further announcements.
Talking about keeping an eye out, Alienware Academy will, of course, be eye tracking enabled and it will provide more in depth data about your gaming skills. How many times did you look at the map? Where was your focus?
These are just some of the things that can be analyzed with eye tracking enabled in Alienware Academy.
If you want to be one of the first to receive access to the platform, sign up for free now on www.alienwareacademy.com.
If you sign up before launch you will receive an exclusive founder status and badge. You will also have a shot at winning one of the 20 limited edition IRL loot boxes.
Keep an eye or two out on this blog for further information or announcements regarding Alienware Academy.
