By adding eye tracking to your Oculus, you will.

Example heatmap

How does it work?

For our modification, we install a camera on your Oculus Rift. This allows you to monitor the eye movements in the Oculus. We have kept the design as open as possible, you are free to use this video stream with your eye tracking software of choice.

The Oculus eye tracker modification is widely applicable and we can provide it to you as is. If you provide us with additional information about your exact use case, we may even be able to tailor it for the best integration with your research (hardware, software, controllers, etc.).

Pupil-compatible

Our camera is compatible with the open source Pupil eye tracking platform. Pupil allows developers to not only read the raw pupil data, but also to use this data stream in our own applications. For example, we use the data for our custom result visualiser that draws heatmaps on the 3D environment.

FAQ

  • What are the costs for the modification?

    €4500,- excl. VAT

  • Do you provide an integration with [your software/hardware platform]?

    Please get in touch with us to be sure of this.

  • Is it safe to use for longer than [x] hours?

    Our eye tracking modification is independently tested (exempt) according to the IEC/EN 62471 standard for photobiological safety. This means it does not exceed the exposure limits for exposure up to 8 hours.

  • How long does the modification take?

    We are usually able to perform the modification in 3 weeks.

  • Do I need to provide my own Oculus DK2?

    Yes. Unfortunately the Oculus DK2 is not in production anymore. If you do not have an Oculus available, we can probably provide a good second hand option.

  • Is the modification reversible?

    We need to drill a few small holes for the camera, which will cause cosmetic damage to the outside casing. The electrical modifications are non-destructive.

  • Is it possible to have a camera for each eye?

    Yes this is possible. We capture the right eye because approximately two-thirds of the population is right-eye dominant, but the camera placement is flexible.
