Follow the eyes of the world's best fighting-game players
A new piece of technology has allowed us to see exactly what the world’s best fighting-game players are looking at when they battle it out.
A post on Japanese website 4gamer demonstrates the capabilities of the SteelSeries Sentry Gaming Eye Tracker. Created in collaboration with Tobii Technology, the device, which resembles a Wii sensor bar, is placed next to a display and tracks the user’s eye movements.
Looking away from the characters might seem counterintuitive to some, but it makes sense in a game where the control of two-dimensional space is the key to victory. Whether or not such technology has a real use for professional players such as Sako is difficult to gauge, but it certainly makes for an interesting video.
