PLAY, TRACK AND LEARNA fun way to learn gaze interaction and get prepared for AAC
The PCEye Explore is an entry level, peripheral eye tracker that opens up the wonderful world of gaze interaction to everyone. With the PCEye Explore, young or inexperienced users get a simple, fun and no-fail way to learn how to use eye tracking and gaze interaction, while at the same time preparing them for AAC communication.
Connect it to your laptop or desktop and PCEye Explore lets you move the mouse pointer and perform left clicks, using only your eyes. This basic functionality, in combination with the vast number of compatible software titles and webpages, lets users splat, smudge, reveal, paint, play, draw, make music and more, essentially leaving them no ways to fail, but plenty of opportunities to learn while having fun.
NO-FAIL PLAYIn a playful environment, the user can experience the cause of his or her actions and see what is possible – look at the screen and something happens.
TRACK THE USER’S RESPONSEWhen the user is engaging with the screen actively, it is possible to start looking for deliberate and appropriate responses of the user. With a visible mouse cursor showing where the user is looking, we can see if a user is responding and reacting appropriately.
TARGETING AND LEARNINGAs the user becomes familiar with the interaction process between his or her eyes and the screen, and has learned to use this ability, you can introduce active targeting. With “no-fail” targeting software, the user will always experience something fun, exciting, and interesting.
Tobii PCEye Explore is compatible with many third party software titles and web applications.
TONS OF SOFTWARE AND WEB APPLICATIONS FOR FUN AND LEARNING
There are virtually thousands of third party software titles and web applications that bring excitement, fun, escape, and “no-fail” activities to end users where there has otherwise mostly been work, repetition, and effort. As long as they work with a mouse cursor and an optional left mouse click, you can use them with PCEye Explore.
PCEye Explore works brilliantly together with simple stamping, choice making and reading activities all available in Boardmaker Online.

The settings for PCEye Explore are few and simple, making it easy for the care giver.
SIMPLE SETTINGS FOR THE CARE GIVER
After the eye tracker has been installed and calibrated, there are few things that call for your attention. Use the settings to control the basic functionality of the PCEye Explore – turn the eye tracker on or off, show or hide the mouse cursor, and turn click on or off.
Also, a discreet onscreen heads-up-display indicates whether the user is properly positioned in front of the eye tracker or not, allowing for optimum eye tracking performance.
