Tobii Ghost?

Tobii Ghost (previously known as Tobii Streaming Gaze Overlay) is a software that allows you to add an eye tracking overlay to your broadcasting or recording software. (Although you need an eye tracker to do that, of course.)

It can be used for live streaming or video recordings in several different platforms. Conveniently though, you can connect to your Twitch account directly from Tobii Ghost in order to start streaming with the extension.

Which brings us to…

Twitch streamers that have an eye tracker can now install the Tobii Ghost Extension in Twitch and let their viewers take control over how they see the eye tracking overlay.

The extension works as an overlay on your Twitch stream, showing a small icon when your viewers hover over the video.

When they click the icon, viewers get options to customize how they see the eye tracking overlay in their own browsers. They can choose between different display presets and toggle the overlay off and back on.
