Our smallest and most versatile eye tracker
The PCEye Mini can be used to fully replace the traditional keyboard and mouse with the Access package, which includes our software Windows Control for full computer access. If the ambition is to get started with eye tracking, the package Track & Learn is a good option. Choose product option below to see more information.
If you want to use the PCEye Mini with a tablet, please take a look at the EyeMobile Mini.

For someone who can’t use their hands or fingers eye tracking is probably the quickest, easiest and most ergonomically sound way to operate a computer. The PCEye Mini lets you surf the web, connect with friends online, play games, Skype, turn on the lights or TV, and even make spreadsheets and documents using only your eyes. With the PCEye Mini you get:
The PCEye Mini allows you to use all the functions of your computer, using only your eyes Ultimately the PCEye Mini gives you greater personal freedom and independence.
The PCEye Mini is based on an additional five years of research and development as well as test data compared to its predecessor. Approximately 800 individuals with different conditions, vision, ethnicities, everyday dust, smudges or blemishes around their eyes, with eyes out of focus, etc. were tested and based on these extensive tests we’ve rewritten our eye tracking algorithms and filters. This knowledge has been packaged as new patents, new eye models, higher robustness and the world’s first eye tracking ASIC circuit, the Tobii EyeChip™.
The PCEye Mini easily attaches and detaches from your desktop screen or laptop using a smart, seamless magnetic mounting bracket and USB connection. It is lightweight and small enough to be easily transported and used with different computers.
All eye interaction processing is done on the PCEye Mini itself with the latest Tobii EyeChip™, avoiding additional workload for your computer or tablet and ensuring maximum performance. This also means that you do not need the latest tablet, laptop or desktop computer in order to use gaze interaction as an access method.
Tobii is the global pioneer of eye tracking technology, with over 11 years of dedicated research, experience and innovation. Over the years we have improved our technology and expertise, which is built into all our eye trackers, including the Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini.
Advanced patented algorithms, filtering and high quality components, to name a few, make all Tobii eye trackers extremely accurate, precise and robust.
The PCEye Mini, together with the zoom functionality of Tobii Dynavox Windows Control, allows you to hit even the smallest targets on the screen, almost with pixel precision, again and again.
The trackbox, the imaginary volume within which you can move your head without losing accuracy, or interrupting the eye tracking session, is among the largest on the market. The large size gives you the freedom to sit or lie down comfortably with maintained eye tracking performance.
Move freely within the trackbox while maintaining superior precision and accuracy. Should you move outside of the trackbox, the PCEye Mini will quickly find your eyes again and continue to track them.
The PCEye Mini provides high-quality tracking results for over 95% of the users*, compared to any other system, regardless of most lighting conditions, eye color, or if you are wearing contacts or glasses.
*results based on hundreds of thousands of diagnostic images and tests on approximately 800 individuals with different conditions, vision, ethnicities, everyday dust, smudges or blemishes around their eyes, with eyes out of focus, etc.

2 Trackbox describes the space in front of the eye tracker where the user must have at least one eye to get gaze data. The eye tracker is at a 20° angle looking upward from below the screen.
3 For larger than recommended screens, the limiting parameter is the quality of the gaze accuracy at the upper corners of the screen when the user sits close to the screen.
4 The degree-of-accuracy and precision over percentage-of-population numbers result from extensive testing across representatives of the whole population. We have made use of hundreds of thousands of diagnostic images and performed tests on approximately 800 individuals with different conditions, vision, ethnicities, everyday dust, smudges or blemishes around their eyes, with eyes out of focus, etc. This has resulted in a much more robust and high performance eye tracking experience and a much more realistic representation of true performance across the whole population, not just in a mathematically "ideal" scenario.
5 The "ideal" degree numbers are the previous standard of measuring accuracy and precision, both previously from Tobii and presently from all eye tracking competitors. Though "ideal" numbers are useful to get a general feel about comparative quality and performance, they are not applicable to real world usage in the same way as quantitative degree-of-accuracy and precision over percentage-of-population numbers based on extensive testing across representatives of the whole population.
