MSI Launches GT72S Gaming Laptop with Tobii Vison Tracking
The future of gaming is here, and it’s amazing! Case in point, the GT72S Tobii from the stables of MSI is as cool, as gaming laptops can be. Using Tobii eye tracking hardware, this laptop lets you control games with just your eyes. For all you non-believers out there, this tech is more than just a gimmick, and comes in handy while playing games and even while logging into Windows 10.
Three infrared sensors placed behind the laptop’s display, track the users eye movements and translate them into inputs. What this would mean in a First Person Shooter like Batllefield, or Counter Strike will be aiming at a target just by looking at them, or aiming at a location in strategy games. This laptop could also be a natural for Racing games such as Project Cars, and Dirt.
The setup of this alien tech is surprisingly simple. A small calibration test is all it takes to get the hardware acquainted with the users sight. Tobii also helps your laptop to do basics tasks such as recognize when you’re sitting in front of the computer and tie it to Window’s screen dimming and sleep times.
This Gaming Laptop also comes equipped with a 2.9GHz Intel Core i7-6820K processor, and unlike the GT72S Dragon only sports a Nvidia GTX 980M GPU. It will feature 8GBs of DDR5 VRAM. Other specs include 32GB of DDR4 RAM, plus a 256GB SSD with another 1TB HDD.
This piece of fancy tech can be yours for a meagre sum of $3600 ( Approx Rs 2,50,000) so yeah, better start saving up.
