    Head tracking but no eye tracking yet. Sounds about right. If I had half implemented something, I would keep quiet about it.

    So an Alpha product gets half a feature implemented and boasts about it. Must be Star Citizen - will it ever get to Beta?

    I very nearly bought a Tobii for this as well as it will be used in the other game I play, Arma 3.

    But still going to hang fire for a potential sale...

    I'd love to know how many people actually use the Tobii system. I think it's built into some monitors though? It's actually something I might be interested in, but probably not with Star Citizen.

    It's pretty much the same functionality you get in SC with a webcam.
    Gonna wait and see if it works better in the dark, and what other players say.

    Other than that I'm pretty much sold, SC is very immersive and being able to look around (as a pilot for example) is a huge plus.

    Try playing Elite Dangerous in a VR headset. I found myself looking all over the place to see where that second bandit went, including leaning forward to see around the edge of the canopy. VR utterly rocks at this sort of game.
