    Hi,

    We don't yet provide access to this. We are looking to provide access to the streams to researchers on a case-by-case basis. We will keep you and the research community updated with progress on this front. Can you please explain a little about the kind of experiments you want to do in the mean time?

    Best Regards,

    Lochlainn (Fove)

    @Lochlainn:

    A FOVE-Research API would be great. We are currently working on saccade-based experiments (e.g. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4921502/) with an EyeLink 1000 System. Considering the maximum frame rates of normal monitors around 100 Hz, it is sufficient to get the 120 Hz of the FOVE for comparable data. FOVE was acquired, to include vestibular data in the setup.

    Maybe you can provide an special Email-Contact for research projects ("case-by-case basis"). Especially, research in perception would be a great niche for the FOVE. But without full access (70Hz in Unity) we feel unnecessarily limited at the moment.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Lochlainn,

    we currently have two publications from our research on rendering with eye tracking in HMD:

    * Concept for Using Eye Tracking in a Head-Mounted Display to Adapt Rendering to the User’s Current Visual Field

    * Combining Eye Tracking with Optimizations for Lens Astigmatism in modern wide-angle HMDs

    You can find the papers here: http://www.q4rt.de/Daniel%20Pohl/

     

    We did these with an eye tracking camera from another company, but now that I am a FOVE owner, it would be great to run some of these expirements with that HMD as well. To do so, I would need access to the original camera data in 120 Hz.

    Please feel free to email me (email is written in the papers). Thanks,

       Daniel

    I, too, am interested in using Fove for research.  The above answer from Lochlainn indicated, " We don't yet provide access to this. We are looking to provide access to the streams to researchers on a case-by-case basis. We will keep you and the research community updated with progress on this front. Can you please explain a little about the kind of experiments you want to do in the mean time?"

     How may I apply as a researcher to be provided access on a case-by-case basis?

    I am a Fove backer since last Spring.  I am interested in medical and rehabilitation applications.

    I am also interested in getting access to camera images. Is there any new development? Will this feature be available in the next SDK so we don't need to reverse engineer or hack the FOVE Config Tool?

    It is definitely on our roadmap. I will keep you posted as I get more information. There are some concerns about privacy and what not, so we will need to make this an opt-in system.

    Hi Lochlainn,

    On 20 May there will be a session at the Vision Sciences Society annual meeting devoted to eye movements measured with HMD in VR, and a second session by invitation of the SMI company that sells eye movement measuring devices including an add-on for HMDs.  I plan to attend both.

    My colleagues and I will be grateful to know as much as you will share about the timeline for a research API/client or other means of access to the eye movement-related data being captured by Fove.  This is a hot topic!  We can't prepare competitive proposals that rely on uncertainty.  

    Thanks & Best,  Keith White
