Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini

The Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini provides individuals with physical and communication impairments the ability to navigate and control Windows tablets with the simple, natural, and relaxed movement of their eyes.

Gaze Interaction on the Move

Compact and lightweight to meet the demands of those on the go, the Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini allows for completely hands-free access to Windows 10 applications, the Internet, movies, music, e-books, social media sites, and games. It gives users with Spinal Cord Injury, Muscular Dystrophy, ALS and Rett Syndrome the opportunity to live richer, more independent and connected lives.

The Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini is a truly innovative computer access solution. It is composed of the PCEye Mini (the smallest and best performing eye tracker to date), the multifunctional EyeMobile Mini mounting bracket, and the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 tablet.

Apps for Mental Stimulation, Leisure, Creativity and More

The Tobii Dynavox Windows Control software opens up access to well over 600,000 social, professional, entertainment and educational Windows apps. Now, those with communication and rehabilitative disabilities have more opportunities for recreation, mental stimulation, leisure activities and expressing themselves creatively.

For example, EyeMobile Mini makes it possible to watch movies or television on Hulu, Netflix or YouTube, listen to music on Spotify, read books on Kindle, and even update Facebook and Twitter.

Innovative User Interface – touch with your eyes

With Tobii Dynavox Gaze Selection and its Windows 10 Functions Overlay, actions such as touch gestures, various click types, taps, side swipes, and screen snapping, can now all be done by using only the eyes. With this interface in place, users are able to access all the functions and standard apps that run on their Windows 8 or 10 tablet without the need for special apps designed for gaze interaction or eye control.

Supports switch and touch input

Gaze Selection can also be paired with switches for even faster computer access. In addition, Gaze Selection supports touch and mouse enabled input, allowing caretakers to quickly assist or communicate with users.

Access and Communication wherever you go

Specifically designed with mobile computer access in mind, the EyeMobile Mini is small, lightweight and easy to bring along when on the move. An integrated table stand lets users quickly set up the device for on-the-fly tabletop use. The versatile mounting plate on the EyeMobile Mini bracket can mount the device on a wheelchair or roll mount for more permanent, mobile use.
The Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini is powered entirely by the Windows tablet battery, which allows it to be used in bed, at the dinner  table, in the car, in the bathroom, in tight  public spaces or whenever needed for around-the-clock communication and computer access.

Caters to Your Preferences and Needs

The EyeMobile Mini bracket can be used with a number of Windows 8 or 10 tablets (see Specifications section for system requirements). This gives users the freedom to select a tablet that best suits their needs and budget and makes it easier to keep up to date with technological developments. Simply replace the tablet when it becomes outdated.

Control Windows 8 and 10 Touch functions with your eyes

The EyeMobile Mini gives users the opportunity to participate at school and obtain/maintain employment. Because of the ability to access productivity tools, such as Microsoft Office, users can send emails, write reports, develop spreadsheets, and more.

The Latest Eye Tracking Technology

The EyeMobile Mini is composed of the PCEye Mini, the multifunctional EyeMobile Mini mounting bracket, and the Windows Surface Pro 4 tablet.
The PCEye Mini is our eye tracking platform with the highest performance to date. When we say performance, we mean a combination of the robustness, accuracy and precision. Compared to its predecessor, the PCEye Mini is based on an additional five years of research and development, as well as test data. This knowledge has been packaged as new patents, new eye models and the world’s first eye tracking ASIC circuit, the Tobii EyeChip™.

Additional Benefits of the PCEye Mini

  • Features a compact, lightweight and  sleek design for easy transportation.
  • The new eye tracking platform captures twice as much data per second than its predecessor and with this surplus of data the Tobii EyeChip™ is better able to filter out errors.
  • All eye-tracking processing takes place on the Tobii EyeChip™, ensuring the  tablet system is not “weighed down”  and that performance is not affected.
  • Runs on the battery of the tablet – no wall outlet needed, giving users freedom of movement.

EyeMobile Mini – Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled a few frequently asked questions for the EyeMobile Mini. If you have a questions that isn’t answered below, please feel free to contact us.

Can I use any tablet?

You have great freedom of choice when it comes to choosing a tablet for your EyeMobile Mini solution. However, there are a few requirements:

    You need a tablet with support that runs Windows 8 or 10.
    Stylus input is required in order to allow for Mouse Cursor Visibility in Mouse Emulation mode when a physical mouse is not attached. Tobii Dynavox Gaze Selection for Windows 8 and 10 does not require stylus support.
    Restrictions apply to the size of the tablet and the placement of the USB port.
    See technical specifications for more details.

Which tablet do you recommend?

  •     We highly recommend the Surface Pro 4, which has been thoroughly tested with all components of the system; bracket, PCEye Mini eye tracker and the Windows Control system. It also provides long battery life, which is important if using your EyeMobile Mini when on the move. This is our “certified” tablet.
  •     We have also tested other tablets and the following are a part of our automatic screen configuration setup:
        – Dell Latitude 10, Dell Venue 11 Pro, Dell Venue 11i Pro
        – Microsoft Surface Pro 1, 2, and 3
        – Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2
        – ACER Iconia W700
        – Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T

What if I want to use another Windows 8 or 10 Pro Tablet? 

You can feel free to try any other Windows 8 or 10 Pro Tablets at your own risk. New Tablets are released regularly and we will try to keep updating the software and configuration on an equally regular basis to test and include as many of the tablets that live up to the recommended specifications and sizes as possible.

It is entirely possible that you might find, and be able to perfectly use, a Windows 8/10 Pro Tablet that we haven’t yet included in our recommendations. If that is the case you will be able to manually configure the screen size in the same way as with the PCEye Mini on a laptop or a desktop.

Can I use a Windows 8 Pro Tablet that only has a Micro USB connector (as opposed to a full USB)?

Yes, with some restrictions. As long as the Micro USB connector on the tablet is made for Data Transfer as well as for charging, it will work together with the PCEye Mini and the EyeMobile Mini. In this case you will need to use an adapter to make it work. You can use an “off the shelf” Micro USB (male) to USB (female) OTG Adapter to connect between the PCEye Mini’s USB and the tablet’s Micro USB.

The tablet must, of course, also fulfill the other requirements mentioned in the technical specifications.

I already have a PCEye Mini. Can I still use EyeMobile Mini?

Yes. If you already use a Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini for your desktop or laptop computer you can easily start using it with a tablet. Simply add the EyeMobile Mini bracket and get a compatible tablet if you do not already have one.

Where can I buy It?

If you live in the U.S. you can buy the EyeMobile Mini solution online Here.

For those living outside the U.S., you can buy the EyeMobile Mini from your Tobii Dynavox representative or any of our resellers. Contact information can be found here.

What happens if it breaks?

If you have purchased the Surface through Tobii Dynavox, you will have special access to Microsoft’s own local support in your country. For information and contact details please see http://www.microsoft.com/surface/support

How do I connect a Switch?

You connect your switch via Bluetooth, or via a second USB port on an external, third party, powered USB hub (which means a hub that is connected to a power outlet for extra power).

How does the EyeMobile Mini compare to the I-Series+, your dedicated speech generating devices?

The Tobii Dynavox EyeMobile Mini is a portable solution for computer access, whereas the Tobii Dynavox I-Series+, with the I-12 and I-15, are dedicated speech generating devices. As such they have been built from ground up to support assistive and augmentative communication. The I-Series+ are medically classed, they have built in IR-senders and receivers for environmental control, they have speakers optimized for speech, they are rugged to withstand the sometimes rough treatment of everyday use.

Does EyeMobile Mini work with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10?

The newest versions of Windows Control and Gaze Selection support Windows 8.1 and 10.
