MSI GT72S G Tobii-805, World’s First Eye-tracking Gaming Laptop Is Now Available for $2,600
MSI’s GT72S G Tobii-805 is finally here, which is the world’s first gaming laptop that comes equipped with Tobii eye-tracking technology.
Priced at $2,600 US, MSI’s latest gaming machine packs a punch featuring a 17.3-inch 1080p display, quad-core 2.7GHz Intel “Skylake” Core i7-6820HK processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M graphics with 8GB of dedicated memory, 32GB of RAM, a 1TB HDD and a 256GB PCIe SSD.
Moreover, MSI will give away a Blu-ray disc burner (9.5mm) and a free copy of Tom Clancy’s The Division, which is due to launch in March with Tobii support.
As for the Tobii’s eye tracking tech, the feature can be used for a variety of things. Especially, gamers can use it to control their character in games that support it, thus eliminating the need to mess around with a mouse and keyboard buttons.
The new technology should be of special interest to game broadcasters as well. Using the XSplit Gamecaster software, GT72S G Tobii-805 can display an overlay of your eye tracking movements on your live stream. So viewers can see exactly where you’re looking at while you’re playing.
The Tobii eye tracking also supports Windows Hello for biometric authentication.
MSI GT72S G Tobii-805 Gaming Laptop is now available exclusively at Newegg, but the online retailer is currently limiting purchases to one per customer.
