Now that virtual reality technology is a commercial reality, eye-tracking for VR has become a hot topic. So what's all the fuzz about? 

Find out at the inaugural Virtual Reality Developers Conference this November, when SMI's Tom Sengelaub -- an eye-tracking expert -- will dig into the topic in his Innovation track talk "Applications of Eye Tracking in Virtual Reality."

SMI (Sensomotoric Instruments) is a world leader in eye-tracking tech, and in his talk Sengelaub will present how eye tracking can be used to personalize the 3D experience. Developers should also note he'll speak directly to how the ability to track someone's "point of gaze" revolutionizes interaction with a virtual world.

The power of eye-tracking is not limited to interaction alone, either -- In the long run, eye-tracking can make logins obsolete, and using foveated rendering, make highresolution displays possible in HMDs. Sengelaub will outline how this can be done and present both the state-of-the-art (and a leap into the future) of eye tracking in VR.
