Microsoft Bundles New Eye Tracking Tech with Latest Windows 10 Preview

Microsoft releases Windows 10 S to developers

Windows 10 S devices now available but you can test it too

It is also limited to select Tobii hardware like the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C (support for Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini, PCEyePlus, EyeMobile Plus, and I-series is coming soon).

This Windows 10 eye control feature was mentioned by Microsoft a couple of days ago, and the first look at it is being rolled out straight away.

In September (possibly), Microsoft will release an update to Windows 10 dubbed Fall Creators Update.

Though now, Microsoft is only supporting Tobii, the company says it is "open to working with additional hardware vendors to provide customers a broader set of hardware options to enable this experience".

The Insider Preview also includes a view goodies for those less interested in Eye Control.

Windows 10 testers will only see the new colors if they clean install build 16257, and if you upgrade you'll keep the legacy colors to ensure any custom color settings are not replaced. This is still a development build, and some things may not work as expected. The members would need to login to Windows Insiders for access to this feature. Similarly, for typing the words, users would need to look at the keyboard, at the character and it would type for you. There is also an Eye Control interaction model to interact with the Windows UI, where looking at the UI will activate it along with voice guidance. At the moment the only such compatible device is a hardware manufactured by Tobii. The address bar has also received some updates, where it will remain under the cursor as long as it's not in focus and you aren't clicking on it or dragging any text around. Further, the Eye Control launchpad obscures the Tobii interface during device calibration, requiring users to turn off Eye Control during the setup process.

The Windows Console has been graced with a new default color scheme, following the introduction of support for full 24-bit RGB color in the Creators Update.

Microsoft got the idea of embedding eye-tracking capabilities into Windows 10 from its first employee hackathon - One Week - in 2014. If the prediction was incorrect, you can simply select an alternative prediction provided.
