ELEAGUE Street Fighter V Invitational 2018 to feature first-of-its-kind use of eye-tracking technology

ELEAGUE, in collaboration with marketing partner Dell Gaming, has announced it will leverage eye-tracking technology to offer fans unprecedented access to the minds of professional Street Fighter players at the upcoming Street Fighter V Invitational 2018.

“As esports continue to grow, technology presents unique opportunities for fans to have a window into the decision making of these highly skilled pro players,” said Robert Occhialini, Vice President, esports Products and Technology, Turner Sports.

“Like in traditional sports, these esports stars have distinct abilities that we can now show as part of ELEAGUE’s live event coverage, and we are excited to offer viewers an unprecedented level of access to live fighting game competition through our partnership with Dell.”

It will be the first major fighting game tournament to track both competitors’ in-game eye movements at the same time.

During the event, micro projectors and sensors supplied by Tobii Group will track each player’s eye movements. Later, that data can be used to create a visual indication of where the competitors look throughout a given match

ELEAGUE’s commentary team will be able to use these enhanced highlights to offer fans a more detailed understanding of how the world’s best Street Fighter players gain match-deciding advantages during pivotal in-game moments.

The Invitational will see 22 of the world’s elite players, along with two rising amateurs who emerged from ELEAGUE The Challenger: Street Fighter V, compete for $250,000 in prize money.

The five-week series begins Friday, June 1, at 3 p.m. ET on Twitch. In the United States, featured Friday matches will air on TBS at 11 p.m. ET/PT each week.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
