With Tobii Dynavox Gaze Selection and its Windows 10 Functions Overlay, actions such as touch gestures, various click types, taps, side swipes, and screen snapping, can now all be done by using only the eyes. With this interface in place, users are able to access all the functions and standard apps that run on their Windows 8 or 10 tablet without the need for special apps designed for gaze interaction or eye control.

Gaze Selection can also be paired with switches for even faster computer access. In addition, Gaze Selection supports touch and mouse enabled input, allowing caretakers to quickly assist or communicate with users.
Gaze Interaction on the Move
Specifically designed with mobile computer access in mind, the EyeMobile Mini is small, lightweight and easy to bring along when on the move.

The Latest Eye Tracking Technology
The EyeMobile Mini is composed of the PCEye Mini, the multifunctional EyeMobile Mini mounting bracket, and the Windows Surface Pro 4 tablet.
The PCEye Mini is our eye tracking platform with the highest performance to date. When we say performance, we mean a combination of the robustness, accuracy and precision. Compared to its predecessor, the PCEye Mini is based on an additional five years of research and development, as well as test data. This knowledge has been packaged as new patents, new eye models and the world’s first eye tracking ASIC circuit, the Tobii EyeChip™.
Additional Benefits of the PCEye Mini
Features a compact, lightweight and sleek design for easy transportation.
The new eye tracking platform captures twice as much data per second than its predecessor and with this surplus of data the Tobii EyeChip™ is better able to filter out errors.
All eye-tracking processing takes place on the Tobii EyeChip™, ensuring the tablet system is not “weighed down” and that performance is not affected.
Runs on the battery of the tablet – no wall outlet needed, giving users freedom of movement.

We have compiled a few frequently asked questions for the EyeMobile. If you have a questions that isn’t answered below, please feel free to contact us.
Can I use any tablet?
You have great freedom of choice when it comes to choosing a tablet for your EyeMobile solution. However, there are a few requirements:
You need a tablet with support that runs Windows 8 or 10.
Stylus input is required in order to allow for Mouse Cursor Visibility in Mouse Emulation mode when a physical mouse is not attached. Tobi Gaze Selection for Windows 8 does not require stylus support.
Restrictions apply to the size of the tablet and the placement of the usb port.
See technical specifications for more details
Which tablets do you recommend?
We highly recommend the Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which has been thoroughly tested with all components of the system; bracket, PCEye Go eye tracker and the Windows Control system. It also provides long battery life, which is important if using your EyeMobile when on the move. This is our “certified” tablet.
We also recommend the Dell Venue Pro
We have also tested other tablets and the following are a part of our automatic screen configuration setup: Dell Latitude 10, Microsoft Surface, Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 and Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T.
What if I want to use another Windows 8 or 10 Pro Tablet?
You can feel free to try any other Windows 8 or 10 Pro Tablets at your own risk. New Tablets are released regularly and we will try to keep updating the software and configuration on an equally regular basis to test and include as many of the tablets that live up to the recommended specifications and sizes as possible.
It is entirely possible that you might find, and be able to perfectly use, a Windows 8 Pro Tablet that we haven’t yet included in our recommendations. If that is the case you will be able to manually configure the screen size in the same way as with the PCEye Go on a laptop or a desktop.
Can I use a Windows 8 or 10 Pro Tablet that only has a Micro USB connector (as opposed to a full USB)?
Yes, with some restrictions. As long as the Micro USB connector on the tablet is made for Data Transfer as well as for charging, it will work together with the PCEye Go and the EyeMobile. In this case you will need to use an adapter to make it work. You can use an “off the shelf” Micro USB (male) to USB (female) OTG Adapter to connect between the PCEye Go’s USB and the tablet’s Micro USB.
The tablet must, of course, also fulfill the other requirements mentioned in the technical specifications and above.
I already have a PCEye Mini. Can I still use EyeMobile Mini?
Yes. If you already use a Tobii PCeye Mini for your desktop or laptop computer you can easily start using it with a tablet. Simply add the EyeMobile Mini bracket and get a compatible tablet if you do not already have one.
What happens if it breaks?
You will receive two years Manufacturer’s Warranty on the EyeMobile Mini bracket and PCEye Mini according to the Tobii Dynavox warranty terms and conditions.
All Microsoft Surface sold through Link-AT come with a 1 year warranty. Tobii Dynavox does not provide any support for the tablet. If you have purchased the Surface through Tobii Dynavox, you will have special access to Microsoft’s own local support in your country. For information and contact details please seehttp://www.microsoft.com/surface/support
How do I connect a Switch?
You connect your switch via Bluetooth, or via a second USB port on an external, third party, powered USB hub (which means a hub that is connected to a power outlet for extra power).
How does the EyeMobile Mini compare to the I-Series+, your dedicated speech generating devices?
The Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini is a portable solution for computer access, whereas the Tobii Dynavox I-Series+, with the I-12 and I-15, are dedicated speech generating devices. As such they have been built from ground up to support assistive and augmentative communication. The I-Series+ are medically classed, they have built in IR-senders and receivers for environmental control, they have speakers optimized for speech, they are rugged to withstand the sometimes rough treatment of everyday use.
Does EyeMobile Mini work with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10?
The newest versions of Windows Control and Gaze Selection support Windows 8.1 and 10.
