    simultaneous head and eye tracking capabilities, providing a superior experience in simulator titles like Elite: Dangerous. (Currently in Beta)
    Do they mean Elite is in Beta, or the tracking is?

    Tobii have been pushing the eye tracking products heavily for months now but the reviews from real users has been mixed. Eye tracking alone is a great assistive technology but I don't think it's a good fit for gaming. I guess that's why they have added (beta) head tracking. Will be interesting what Hexus make of it.
    The new head tracking feature sounds like the kind of free head tracking you can get with a webcam and free software like freetracknoir. Standalone head tracking solutions like EDTracker (Pro or DIT version) or LED/Webcam tracking like TrackIR are in my opinion far better solutions.

    Head Tracking is in Beta, there is apparently a full patch for it on Nov 25th, which will take it out of Beta.
    For me the Head Tracking will be more beneficial and I hope it is as good or better than the current offerings (Trackir etc)

    The Scan pages links to the Tobii 4c "Review" on Hexus. Will there be a proper review now that the unit is available?

    Hi, What do you see as the downsides of the TrackIR tracking ?
