E3 – Not all about the Software!

I had the chance to talk to some friends from SteelSeries today about some of the products they will be sharing on the show floor when E3 Officially opens tomorrow. The Electronic Entertainment Expo opens its doors to the crowds of industry representatives and the media June 10th and runs through the 13th at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

SteelSeries continues to develop accessories for the PC and Console Gamer with everything from Keyboards, Gaming Mice and awesome headsets. One product announced that can help your game play which is different from the traditional products in the company line is the SteelSeries “Sentry” Eye-Tracker

The SteelSeries “Sentry” Eye-Tracker has been developed in conjunction with Tobii Technology.  Gamers benefit with this device with a tracking of eye movements and shares that data with the user as bench-marked and compared to the movements of professional gamers.  The SteelSeries press release explains it easier:

“The SteelSeries Sentry Eye Tracker brings players an entirely new way to train for competitive gaming, by allowing the player to analyze a wide range of statistics based on where and how long a user focused, or fixated, on the screen. Fixations per Minute (FPM) tracks how often a user moves his or her eye gaze and attention around the screen; low values indicate that the gamer is able to process a lot of information. For comparison, FPM in eye tracking is the same type of correlation as APM or the total numbers of actions per minute a player can perform.”  While we could say it’s all in the wrist, obviously from this addition to E3, it’s also in the eyes.

SteelSeries has also continued with its development of products for the mobile gamers and introduced the StratusXL Wireless Game Controller for iOS. Now, users can immerse in the gaming experience on the iPad or iPad Mini and play a game title as they would on the console.

This handle portable scanner is easy to set up and even easier to use.
