SteelSeries has been making gaming accessories and peripherals like keyboards and mice for a long time. SteelSeries has announced that it has teamed up with Tobii, the company that makes all sorts of eye tracking gear for gamers on a new product called the Sentry Eye Tracking System.




Sentry is designed to be the world's first training device designed to improve your gaming performance. The eye tracking system promises to improve your gaming performance by tracking, analyzing, and benchmarking eye movement and behaviors during game play. The goal of the tracking and benchmarking is to help the gamers improve and win the game.


The virtual coach device tracks fixations per minute, a value of how often the user moves the eyes around the screen. SteelSeries says that a lower value for fixations per minute is better. SteelSeries is working with pro gamers to set benchmark metrics to help amateur gamers have numbers to strive for. Sentry will be available for gamers to purchase later this year.
