We are happy to announce, that we will start shipping the NUIA software and SDK

Posted by 4tiitoo (Creator)

Dear Backers

Thank you for your continued patience.

We are happy, that in spite of the ongoing patent discussion, we have the agreement of all parties, that we can start shipping the NUIA software and SDK to you.

It will still take a bit before we can make the eye tracking hardware available to you, but you can immediately start using the NUIA software with all the other sensors that are already supported by NUIA, including:

  • LEAP Motion
  • Microsoft Kinect (Gesture sensor)
  • Creative Gesture Camera
  • Nuance Speech Control
  • and many more

If you have questions or suggestions regarding supported hardware please drop us an email at

With the NUIA SDK the developers amongst you can also immediately start adapting NUIA to your favorite apps and games and realize your vision on how natural user interaction should work.

The detailed instructions on how to download and activate your individual copy of NUIA software and SDK will be send to you within the next days.

Start diving into the NUIA experience of computer interaction! We are looking forward to your feedback and ideas.

Thank you for your continued support & best regards from Munich,

Tore, Stephan and the entire NUIA Team

Karin Moog, Christoph Straub, and 31 more people like this update.

      Dear NUIA people,
      Is there a possibility to use the IR camera and IR LED to record eye tracking with
      the software and SDK?
      I read your patent problem belongs to the hardware.. right?

      Basically, the hardwares of eye trackers are relatively simple and rely heavily on its software.
      Software IS the KEY.
      Many of backers are enough smart to make hardware by themselves, I believe.

      "NUIA SDK provides a large sandbox to play in – no matter if you want to create a complete application from scratch or create an extensions to teach Adobe® Photoshop, Google® Earth or League of Legends® some new tricks. Of course we have made sure that in order to extend an existing application, no changes to the sourcecode or binaries of the underlying app are necessary."

      I have ordered both the NUIA eyecharm eye tracker and Eye Tribe eye tracker, but NUIA's software development kit feature of "no changes to the sourcecode or binaries of the underlying app are necessary" sounds powerful.

      I don't want to repeatedly make feature requests, and hope that developers will listen, and make their applications compatible with eye tracking.

      Nachdem wiederholt kein Kontakt möglich war, möchte ich dieses Teil nicht mehr haben. Versprochen wurde das Gerät mit dem Eye-tracking und so wie ich das jetzt verstehe, bekommen wir irgendeine Software, die wir selber anpassen können.
      WAS SOLL DAS???
      Ich habe bezahlt für das funktionierende Gerät mit Brille. Dies kam nicht in der versprochenen Zeit. Ich will mein Geld zurück.
      I want my money back since the promised device is overdue long time and obviously can't be delivered as offered. You have had enough time to work with our money, right? Result is poor.

      At this point I don't even have my kinect any more, and I've lost all interest.

      This is great to hear! I'm glad you guys are able to get back on track and I think the prospects look good. This will definitely be a revolutionary technology if you guys stay persistent, and as a developer I hope to design some great eye-tracking integration with the SDK once the hardware ships (whenever that is). I do apologize on behalf of myself and everyone else that seems impatient and at times mob-like (I can't imagine how many refund requests you received). My suggestion for the coming months is to leave a message every 2-4 weeks, even at times when there are no updates, if only to let us know there is still life in this project. Can't wait to try it out!!
