MSI announced a partnership with eye-tracking company Tobii Tech to bring the emerging technology to the company's already impressive gaming laptop portfolio. The just-announced concept notebook GT72 is the first device of its kind to have eye-tracking built right into it.
Although it's not a new concept on its own, the idea of using eye-tracking on a gaming laptop is something quite novel. While testing the technology with Assassins Creed PC game, the trio of short-range infrared sensors monitors your eye movement.
It allows you to adjust your field of vision to where you want to in the game. Instead of rotating the camera with a mouse or buttons, you simply look to where you want to, and the detection software kicks in and sweeps the camera to where you want it to.

The eye-tracking functions extend beyond gaming -- although Tobii was also demoing a high-speed rhythm game to showcase faster response times.
A brief calibration test only has to be done once, and then the PC can assign that calibration data to Windows user profile.

In the near future, games are expected to react to eye contact, bringing immersion to a whole new level in games, and MSI is apparently ready with the GT72 when that happens.
MSI will officially launch the product after Computex, though it expects some design changes. MSI hasn't yet finalized what the laptop will look like. There's also no pricing, but it's not likely to be cheap.
