SteelSeries has been a supporter of eSports for a long time by sponsoring various teams and producing various gaming products. But now the gaming peripheral manufacturer is looking to be more involved with eSports in a different way. At CES 2015, SteelSeries has been demoing its Sentry Eye Tracker and showing the Apex M800 mechanical gaming keyboard which Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang was able to see in person.


The Sentry Eye Tracker is a piece of hardware that will track a player’s eye movements in real time which can be shown to viewers on Twitch who will see what the streamer is looking at the entire time. Both gamers and pro gamers can utilize the device to help improve their skills and their gaming strategy from the information that is gleaned. Software included with the device will track and record eye movements, such as how many times a player will look at a game’s minimap, that can then be reviewed by the player to show what he or she was focusing on and how that might affect their gameplay. 


According to the rep, the installation and setup is easy and quick. The device comes with a mounting bracket that will attach to a user’s monitor and calibration will take around three to five minutes.

The SteelSeries Sentry Eye Tracker will retail for $199.99 at the end of January and support Dota 2 and Starcraft II at launch.  


SteelSeries is also showing its new Apex M800 mechanical gaming keyboard. It utilizes the company’s own QS1 linear switch that is allegedly comparable to the MX Red switches. The company claims that the keys will have a 60 million click lifecycle. It also features centered, surface-mounted LEDs on every key which has a range of 16.8 million colors to choose from.


The SteelSeries Apex M800 will cost $199 and be available at the end of January.
