MSI presents GT72 gaming notebook with eye control
The Taiwanese MSI has surprised gamers once again with a new gaming notebook called GT72. While the new notebook certainly features some great hardware inside, its main feature lies elsewhere – this is the first notebook in the world that you can control with your eyes.
The GT72 can be eye-controlled thanks to several Tobii sensors integrated into the chassis that follow your eye movements and calculate where your eyes stare. Thus by moving your eyes you can read documents, look through files and more. You can also use the old-fashioned keyboard and mouse too, so don’t worry too much of not being able to work with the GT72.
The new MSI notebook has not been designed for work, though – it is made for games. Thus the GT72 comes with a large 17.3-inch matter LCD display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) and offers a quad-core Intel Core i7 Haswell processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics with 8 GB of VRAM, support for up to four M.2 SSDs and enough space for a 1 TB hard drive. The machine also houses Killer E2200 networking hardware, Dynaudio sound hardware, a BD burner, a card reader, HDMI and two MiniDisplay ports. There also are a programmable SteelSeries LED-backlit keyboard, six USB 3.0 ports, a HD web camera, a Multi-touch touchpad and a 9-cell battery.
The new MSI GT72 runs Windows 8.1 64-bit. The price of the gaming notebook and the release date are unknown.
