Eye Tribe, one of the most promising futuristic technology developer team has announced the release of their SDK(Software Development Kit) in coming month of June. The company(theeyetribe.com) made the announcement at "DEMO Mobile 2013", a launch event that exclusively concentrates on the best new mobile technologies based on design, innovation and market potential.

As stated by Sune Alstrup Johansen, The Eye Tribe CEO and co-founder, "What we show today is only the tip of the iceberg of what eye control will be used for in applications and games,”.



About The Eye Tribe:

The Eye Tribe software enables eye control on mobile devices, allowing hands­free navigation of websites and apps; incl. eye activated login, enhanced gaming experiences and cloud­ based user engagement analytics. The Eye Tribe intends to become the leading provider of eye control technology for mass market consumer devices by licensing the technology to manufacturers.

It all started seven years ago where the four founders meet at the IT University of Copenhagen. The ambition was to make eye tracking available for everyone at an affordable price. Within a couple of years they was renowned as the world leading research group in low cost eye tracking. After finishing their PhD’s the four founders bought the IP from the University and formed The Eye Tribe company during their participation in the European StartupBootcamp accelerator program in 2011. The team now includes 16 full time employees, building eye tracking software and applications for mobile devices. The Eye Tribe received seed funding of USD 1 million from private European investors in 2012 and is also leading a USD 4.4 Million government funded project to develop eye control for mobile devices.
