CES 2016 - MSI has worked with the NSA Tobii on its latest laptop, baking in a Tobii eye tracking system that the company claims is a world's first.

MSI's new gaming laptop features Tobii eye tracking technology |

Tobii's eye tracking technology has been built into the MSI GT72S Tobii, which is short for the longer, more confusing name: GT72S 6QE-835CA Dominator Pro G Tobii. The laptop rocks a 17.3-inch 1080p display, and when the system is tracking your eyes "game characters and environments will react to your gaze, focus and attention"... freaky.

There are only a handful of games with support for Tobii right now, including Assassin's Creed Rogue, Arma 3, Flight Simulator, and Euro Truck Simulator 2. But in a few months, The Division will be released, and it'll be bundled with the GT72S Tobii on March 8.

Inside of the laptop, we have some decent hardware: an Intel Core i7-6820K processor, 32GB of DDR4, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M with 8GB of GDDR5, a 256GB SSD, a 1TB HDD, and plenty of ports including USB Type-C.
