A major new feature that’s coming with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update later this year is the new built-in eye-tracking system. Dubbed Eye Control, the new eye-tracking feature in Windows 10 allows users to control the whole operating system with their eyes. Using their eyes, users can control the mouse, type things, and do a lot more. The feature is currently available as a beta to Windows Insiders running the latest Insider Preview, and it can be used right now if you have the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. Here’s how.
First, you will need to have the Tobii Eye Tracker 4C — this is the only tracker that’s supported by Eye Control at the moment, and Microsoft plans on adding support for other Tobii eye trackers in the future. If you don’t have the Eye Tracker 4C, you can get one from Amazon for $149.
Once you have the Eye Tracker 4C, simply connect it to your PC with the USB cable and then download the required software. You will have to download the latest version of Tobii’s Core eye-tracking software from here (warning: direct download link) and install it. Once you download it, you will need to configure the Eye Tracker 4C which is shown in the video:
Once your tracker is configured and ready to go, you will need to check for updates in Windows Update and download the Tobii Eye Tracker HIDClass driver. After that, head over to Ease of Access > Other Options > Eye control in the Settings app (Win + I) and enable Eye Control.
Now that Eye Control is enabled, the Eye Control launchpad should appear near the top of your Windows 10 display and let you access the eye control features if you have done the setup properly.
