Looxid Labs won the CES 2018 Best of Innovation Awards in Virtual Reality for LooxidVR, a mobile based VR headset for eye tracking and EEG recording. It’s quite the achievement for the tech start-up, following in the megacorp footsteps of previous winners Google’s Tilt Brush last year and Samsung’s Gear VR in 2016.
LooxidVR is a mobile based VR headset embedded with EEG sensors and eye tracking cameras so it can track a user's brain activity, eye movement, and pupil dilation. In particular, LooxidVR allows time-synchronised acquisition of eye and brain data concurrent with VR contents and provides an expandable API, which can be widely applicable in various VR industries that require better understanding of users' emotional status such as stress level, preference, and engagement.
Yongwook Chae, CEO at Looxid Labs said, "It is really encouraging to see our technology and potential recognised globally with the Best of Innovation Awards at CES 2018, where the most influential and ingenious consumer technologies are showcased. Pre-order sales will be kicked off on February 1st, 2018. I hope you stay tuned for our future development including comprehensive VR user analytics solution based on eye and brain interface".
