Microsoft HID Eye Tracking Support
EyeTech TM5 eye trackers are capable of working with the built-in eye tracking tools in Windows 10. To enable this, the eye tracker must be upgraded with a new firmware. Download and run the 18.104.22.168_HID firmware installer to upgrade the eye tracker to the correct firmware version.
This installer will also register a calibration app with the system. This calibration app can be launched directly from the Windows 10 eye control launchpad when you select the calibrate button.
NOTE: As of right now this is intended for developers or customers that are interested in trying this new technology. In its current state, this updated firmware will disable eye tracking in existing applications that are designed to work with EyeTech eye trackers.
After the eye tracker firmware is upgraded, it can later be downgraded back to our latest stock version. This will allow it to function once again with existing applications that are designed to work with EyeTech eye trackers. To downgrade back to the stock firmware, use the firmware installer 22.214.171.124.
To use our API with this new firmware (126.96.36.199_HID), download [QuickLink2 Installer 188.8.131.52 beta] this is a beta version of our API. You can use this API for testing the interaction between your application and the built-in Windows 10 tools. This API is backward compatible to work with the stock firmware (184.108.40.206) as well.
