MSI Re-Envisions Mobile Gaming with GT72SG Tobii with Eye-Tracking Technology
World’s first gaming laptop that recognizes, reacts and controls game activity with looks, stares and gazes now available
City of Industry, Calif – February 8, 2016 – MSI Computer Corp, a leading manufacturer of computer gaming hardware and solutions, announces the availability of the GT72S G Tobii, the world’s first gaming notebook that unlocks the power of vision by harnessing and translating the eyes’ natural and intuitive movements into the game.
The world’s most advanced gaming laptop, the GT72S G Tobii with eye-tracking technology immerses gamers into a hands-free dimension by allowing them to switch targets in a game, select objects on the floor or even automatically pause a game by simply focusing or looking away. Available immediately, MSI’s GT72S G Tobii will be bundled with Tom Clancy’s The Division and currently supports a variety of gaming titles, including Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed Rogue, ArmA III, Elite Dangerous and more.
“The GT72S G Tobii adds another dimension to gaming and provides a level of interaction and immersion never experienced before,” says Andy Tung, president of MSI Pan America. “Our eyes will no longer be passive players, they will now direct, command and transport us into the future of PC gaming.”
MSI’s GT72S G Tobii gives streaming an added dimension by seamlessly and instantly overlaying eye-tracking into streams, giving viewers’ added perspective on the real-time game play experience for supported streaming platforms like XSplit Gamecaster. Tobii’s industry-leading eye-tracking technology with triple dual lens near-IR illuminators can also precisely track eye movements in any room under any lighting conditions.
Tobii and MSI are blazing a new path in gaming and driving the growth of eye-tracking technology by creating new experiences and thinking outside of the box,” states Oscar Werner, President of Tobii Tech. “We encourage and support forward-thinking developers in their mission to create new experiences for not only gaming, but streaming and general computing.”
GT72S G Tobii gaming laptop is compatible with Windows 10 and Windows Hello, the new password-free login system. By going through a 15-second set-up process, users can securely log into their computers using a personalized glance; highlight, select or delete items with one look; seamlessly zoom and center maps without scrolling; and even sift through Windows, folders and its applications without lifting a finger.
MSI’s GT72S G Tobii will be equipped with the same cutting-edge components found in versions without eye-tracking technology, including the latest Intel Core-i7 processors, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980M extreme graphics, Killer DoubleShot Network, Nahimic Sound Technology, XSplit Gamecaster, a full color backlit keyboard by SteelSeries, and more.
