vizard Virtual reality eye tracking features

  • Recording and playback eye tracking behavior for "after action review" including 3D path review
  • Extensive data analytics
  • User performance triggered feedback loops with eye or physiological sensor data
  • Precise timing experimental control and device synchronization
  • 360 videos and 3D files from a wide array of sources as customizable stimuli
  • Recording of gaze direction data, pupil size, fixation timings, and other low level parameters
Why is Virtual Reality Eye Tracking Important?
Scientific research

Virtual reality eye tracking for research is groundbreaking for collecting data on a myriad of scientific research applications that involve visual attention.

Data analysis

Apply VR eye tracking for collecting user data within VR based marketing research studies that analyze the consumer journey, and uncover how product ads, designs, and placements trigger buying decisions

Active VR input

Simply look and grab with virtual reality eye tracking, rather than pointing at virtual objects or pressing a virtual button. Especially for distant objects, that’s huge.

Gauge user intent and focus

VR eye tracking helps you achieve greater control over your virtual environment. For example, by optimizing aim when throwing objects in VR: You can improve the trajectory by inferring where someone aims based on gaze.

Vizard Extension Package: VR Eye Tracking Analytics Lab
WorldViz offers a simple yet powerful tool for setting up eye tracking experiments in VR that include examples for common eye tracking tasks, multi user environments, heat maps, access to a support ticketing system for professional users, and more. The VR Eye Tracking Analytics Lab runs on Vizard, which allows native integration with thousands of Python libraries.

vizard VR Software testimonials

"As someone with very little prior experience with VR, I was extremely impressed by the fact that WorldViz was able to send me a complete turnkey system that I had out of the box, plugged into my computer, and running flawlessly in less than an hour."
Colin Ellard
"We have used Vizard for several years and find its combinations of power, flexibility, ease-of-use, and price to be unrivaled. It has all the features that I have needed to do behavioral research with virtual environments."
david waller
“Vizard was conceived and developed specifically for conducting experimental research using virtual environments. With many years of development behind it, Vizard has proven to be the tool that any experimentalist would want.”
jack loomis
"Individuals with minimal 3D modeling and programming experience quickly became proficient with the aid of Vizard’s built-in tutorials and easy-to-understand help files."
Jason Richard
"Vizard allows me to expose subjects to life-like, immersive stimuli - like flying through a cityscape or chopping down a redwood tree - that I couldn't create otherwise. WorldViz has helped me and my colleagues launch behavioral research into a new era."
jeremy bailenson
"The level of immersiveness achieved with WorldViz VR technology allows me to maintain ecological validity within my studies."
