Real Time Tracking
The two white dots in the black square area on the screen represent the two eyes and show the real-time tracking.
Gaze Plot
On the eye tracking device just below the screen we can see two pinkish circles on the right hand side. These circles are infrared cameras that record fixations and saccades based on reflection from the eyes.
