I love playing games; so after I did the initial set-up, I had to register to their web-site; so I could download the application to allow the device to assist with games. Honestly, this is a completely new way for me to interact with my games, and it will take some practice to get used to it, but I foresee this taking my gaming to the next level, in both enjoyment and skills.
(My issue) Major eye strain! I cannot use the Tobii 4C for longer than a few minutes before I get a terrible headache from the eye strain. I tested it with Prepar3d, The Division and Elite Dangerous. All became unplayable due to the strain after just a few minutes. Will this be an issue for everyone? No, but if you have issues with eye strain already then this will bother you.
That aside, how well does it work? Pretty well honestly. After I mounted and calibrated the unit it tracked my eyes with pretty good precision. It's awesome tech, and for many will be a nice addition to their gaming rig, if that's your use case. In all three games I tested the camera movement was fluid and responsive. It can be adjusted as well, via software, to increase or decrease the sensitivity, range of motion, etc if needed. I didn't make any adjustments because I felt the defaults worked well, but it's there if you need it.
Now on to head tracking. The 4C and software now supports head tracking, and it does a pretty good job of that as well. What I couldn't figure out is if there was a way to disable eye tracking and only use head tracking. If I could I'd likely continue to use it over TrackIR, because I can't stand wearing a hat and the clip is garbage. I gotta say though, when I was mixing both head and eye tracking at the same time my eye strain was even worse. I'm sure someone will tell me in the comments if there's a way, but I couldn't see it. Eye tracking was always on, and you could toggle head, but not the reverse.
Ultimately the eye strain issue is likely due to the unnatural way you end up looking at things, albeit unconsciously. When you're using your computer normally you glance here and there, not really intently looking at any one thing or another. It's natural. What I found with the 4C is that when I'd look somewhere in game, I'd do it intently and deliberately. I knew where I looked would change the camera, and therefore I really LOOKED. It's unnatural at first and probably with continued use that habit would go away and it would become more "natural". You do not have to look intently at things to make the kit respond, but you find yourself doing it anyway. Not a fault of the product, just how I found myself using it and it is likely the main cause for my serious eye strain.
Finally, my -1 star. Design. The USB cable and the rigid way it comes out the side of the wand is a PITA. What happened to the previous design where a mini-USB plug was on the device? Then at least we had options and could get a 90 degree cable, or something, to minimize the profile. The way it is now, with the rigid cable and pretty serious strain relief, it's an unforgiving mount. In fact, I had a hard time even getting my device to mount flat and perfectly parallel on the monitor because of that bulky cable pushing it away from the monitor. The older model had the plug, not sure why they went away from that.
In conclusion, I looked at the 4C as a way to replace the TrackIR. I've used TrackIR in games for years, and I have others such as EDTracker as well. All work about the same, but most are pretty annoying if you don't like wires hanging off of you during game play. I don't like the wires, and I don't like the TrackIR sensor options, so I wanted something different. Tobii 4C was the best choice I found for that, but it doesn't deliver for me. That's me though... not you. Your mileage may vary, make up your own mind.
