The free Eyeware Beam beta app turns a Face ID-supported iPhone or iPad, with a built-in TrueDepth camera, into a precise, multi-purpose, six degrees of freedom (6DoF) head and eye tracking device for gaming and live streaming.[1]

Key points

Does not require any wearables or extra hardware other than an iPhone or iPad that supports Face ID and a Windows PC.
The iOS app for the phone captures head movements and accompanying Eyeware PC software translates those movements into on-screen actions in games and streams.
The USB connection reduces CPU usage of the iOS app by 20% and offers a more stable connection in comparison to Wi-Fi.
OpenTrack is required to enable head tracking in games.
A phone mount will help to achieve optimal positioning and stability for head and eye tracking.
The eye tracker overlay bubble does not control gameplay as head tracking does.
No Android or webcam support is available.
Head and eye tracking will not work unless the Eyeware Beam iOS app is open on the iPhone or iPad at all times when in use.
The quality of the head and eye tracking is affected by external factors. You must always re-start calibration any time a condition changes.

Features[edit]

Head Tracking[edit]

Six degrees of freedom head movement (Pitch, Yaw, Roll, X, Y, and Z) and eye movement captured via user-facing iOS TrueDepth camera technology to enable remote real-time tracking.

A PC software counterpart paired with the phone lets user stream their gaze or play simulator games that support head tracking.

Eliminates headsets, glasses, and webcams with wearables-free head and eye tracking.

Eye Tracking[edit]

Eye tracker overlay allows users to broadcast in real-time a circle indicating where the user's gaze is focused.

Live streamers and esports gamers can show their audience in real-time how they focus their attention, aim in FPS games, and analyze their gameplay.[2]
