Modify your Vive for VR research

Would you like to know what caught the attention in your virtual environment?
By adding eye tracking to your HTC Vive, you will.

How does it work?

For our modification, we install a camera on your HTC Vive. This allows you to monitor the eye movements in the headset. And the best part: we can add the eye tracker without any drilling or permanent damage to your headset.

The eye tracker modification is widely applicable and we can provide it to you as is. If you provide us with additional information about your exact use case, we may even be able to tailor it for the best integration with your research (hardware, software, controllers, etc.).

Pupil logo


Our camera is compatible with the open source Pupil eye tracking platform. Pupil allows developers to not only read the raw pupil data, but also to use this data stream in our own applications. For example, we use the data for our custom result visualiser that draws heatmaps on the 3D environment.

What can I do with it?

There are countless opportunities for VR research. To name a few:

  • marketing research
  • healthcare
  • training & education
  • (serious) gaming
