Asia’s VR innovators are fast making a name for themselves, as new companies race to solve the biggest challenges in making VR technology consumer friendly. Now South Korea-based VisualCamp claims to have developed an eye tracking technology for Virtual Reality Head Mount Displays that allows user to input signals by just moving their eyes.

Providing an easy input system has been a challenge for VR players in the market. This June, Oculus introduced Oculus Touch, but the system still requires users to buy another input device that includes analog trigger, buttons and analog thumb sticks along with the core VR head-mounted display.

Using VisualCamp, users can supposedly ‘click’ the buttons with their eyes, negating the need for additional input devices. Eye tracking data can also be analyzed. Using the technology, the company developed its own VR device utilizing 3D printing technology, with a price tag under $100 USD.
