Neuro-technology firm SyncThink announced today that it has received a patent related to tracking eye movements in virtual reality headsets. That could be a potentially important piece of intellectual property, as VR headsets become more plentiful. VR is expected to be a $30 billion market in 2020, according to tech advisor Digi-Capital.
“VR technology is the ideal environment for eye tracking. It’s a platform where we can provide powerful cognitive insights,” said SyncThink chief technology officer Daniel Beeler, in a statement. “The new patent will give us the ability to expand upon the already useful product we’ve created and the capabilities of multiple industries utilizing VR headsets.”
