TabletKiosk and SMI Collaborate to Produce the Sahara EyeSlate

TORRANCE, Calif., June 24, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- TabletKiosk®, a leading manufacturer of enterprise-grade Tablet PCs and accessories for business, today announces a new collaboration with SensoMotoric Instruments GmbH (SMI), a leader in eye tracking, eye control, guidance and registration technology, to cooperatively develop the Sahara EyeSlate™, the first Tablet PC with market ready eye tracking integration.


TabletKiosk and SMI plan to market the Sahara EyeSlate™ both as an augmentative/alternative communication device (AAC) and also as a powerful Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC that can be controlled via eye gaze, touch, voice or handwriting recognition in lieu of a physical keyboard and mouse.

The Sahara EyeSlate™ adds eye tracking functionality to TabletKiosk's signature line of Tablet PCs, the Sahara Slate PC i500 without requiring oversized and expensive add-on modules or awkward brackets as with most traditional augmentative computing devices.   

"We are excited to partner with SMI to announce the Sahara EyeSlate™ Tablet PC with eye tracking technology," said Martin Smekal, President and CEO of TabletKiosk.  "As a specialty hardware manufacturer, TabletKiosk strives to align itself with cutting edge technology partners like SMI to jointly create customized and purpose-based hardware computing solutions."

When TabletKiosk originally launched in 2003, it was one of the first Tablet PC manufacturers to incorporate touch screen technology into its entire line of computing solutions. Now, ten years later, TabletKiosk is once again transforming the Tablet PC platform by incorporating SMI's gaze tracking technology. Included with the system will be SMI's powerful Eye Tracking Software Developer's Kit (SDK) so that developers can integrate the Sahara EyeSlate™ Tablet PC's eye tracking functionality with their existing software solutions.

Christian Villwock, Director of SMI´s OEM Solutions Business: "The use of eye tracking technology is gaining momentum in many application fields ranging from AAC, gaming and medical screening to gaze interaction in other industry and prosumer applications. We are proud to work with TabletKiosk and are convinced that this new all-in-one tablet PC provides tremendous customer value in many of these fields."
