MSI’s Latest Tobii Gaming Laptop Comes with Eye-tracking Tech

Micro-Star International (MSI) may not be the biggest or most-renowned name in technology when we talk about China, but it certainly is among the country’s most potent and cutting-edge. The latest GT72S G Tobii gaming laptop from the firm is a swell monster which is also the world’s first with eye-tracking technology.

Yes, that’s right. At the bottom of the gorgeous display, you get a set of (there’re three of those) Tobii’s near-IR illuminators which may look quite cool to you, but relay the information of your eye movement to a stream or a game.

Software Support For Eye-Tracking Technology

This technology is supported by around two dozen video game titles, including Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed: Rogue and Elite: Dangerous. This means your eyes can actually give out your location or strategy to your opponent so it’s a good idea to watch out. There’s also support for all those cool eye-tracking passwords, scanners and other cool stuff in Windows 10.

The Hardware

Apart from this, the laptop comes with a 17.3″ 1080p display, along with a full-color backlit SteelSeries keyboard underneath for better responsiveness. Under the hood, you get a SkyLake 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i7 K processor with GeForce GTX 900M GPU, 32 GB DDR4 memory, 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD as well as a Blu-Ray disc burner drive.

You can also connect up to two 4K monitors externally via USB 3.0. 3W speakers and a dedicated subwoofer will make audio more interesting, while there’s also HiFi DAC support if you have some expensive headphone gear.

The early buyers will get Tom Clancy’s The Division along with their purchase as a free perk. No new tech is expected to be affordable once it comes out and this is even more so the case with a backlit, eye-tracking, IR-boasting laptop from MSI.

Available for pre-order at $2600, the GT72S will be available in the coming few months.
