FOVE is the first virtual reality headset that utilizes eye tracking. It was created by a Tokyo-based startup founded by Yuka Kojima (CEO) and Lochlainn Wilson (CTO). Announced in 2014, FOVE's technology uses infrared to track eye movements with accuracy and low latency. The sensors within the device tracks the user's pupils. It allows the user to target and interact with objects by making eye contact with them.
Kickstarter Campaign for FOVE began in May, 2015. It has an initial goal of $250,000. The goal was reached in less than 4 days. Backers who contribute $349+ will receive a FOVE HMD in May, 2016. FOVE raised a total of $480,650 through the campaign.
