xLabs is a small but smart startup, with a unique technology: We can work out what users are looking at on the screen. And that’s not all we do. Although eye and gaze tracking technology has been around for a while, the good solutions all require expensive, specialist hardware. Ours doesn’t. It’s just our software, and a webcam. Any webcam.
There are some web-based gaze tracking systems out there, but they all require users to sit still, and recalibrate after any movement. This is disruptive and limiting.
Our software offers continuous, realtime tracking without restricting user movement. Once thoroughly calibrated, it just works all the time, allowing users to get up and sit down as much as they like. The tech is so good we can offer it as a user input system, capturing all sorts of data such as gaze, head and face gestures, expressions and so on.
Our vision is to capture everything beyond the screen: The computer should be a sympathetic and understanding companion, not a dumb droid that mindlessly parrots instructions at you. By capturing all the nonverbal communication people naturally produce, we can make the web a human place that’s far easier to interact with. So, in addition to gaze tracking, our developer interface provides eye-gaze, facial expression & head gestures.
xLabs technology can be delivered in three ways.
Third, we can provide a C++ SDK for eye-gaze tracking for commercial partners only.
