Tobii Dynavox: Tech for a Better World: Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini Named CES 2017 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree

Tobii Dynavox (http://tobiidynavox.com), the global leader in eye
tracking and touch based communication devices, announced today the
PCEye Mini with IS4 Eye Tracker was named a CES 2017 Best of
Innovation Award Honoree in the "Tech for a Better World" product
category; a designation awarded to only the highest-rated product or
technology in each category.

The annual CES Innovation Awards celebrate outstanding product design
and engineering in brand-new consumer technology products. The
prestigious Innovation Awards program recognizes top honorees among
28 award categories, including "Tech for A Better World," which
honors products that provide positive societal and/or global impact.

The Tobii Dynavox PCEye Mini is the smallest and most robust eye
tracker on the market for assistive technology. Optimized for
individuals that do not have use of their hands-due in part to
disabilities such as Spinal Cord Injuries, ALS, Stroke, Cerebral
Palsy, Rett Syndrome, or other degenerative conditions-the device
enables users to control a computer, laptop or tablet using only
their eyes.

"We are incredibly grateful and humbled to receive this honor," said
Fredrik Ruben, President of Tobii Dynavox. "For individuals who are
non-verbal and have mobility challenges, this product is
life-changing. Mere decades ago, living with conditions that
restricted voice and movement meant living with the inability to
communicate-beyond a blink for `yes' or `no.' Today, we are
revolutionizing access to technology and making it possible for
individuals to not only find their voice and be heard, but also gain
life-changing independence."

With the PCEye Mini, individuals with disabilities that inhibit the
use of their hands or arms can remain in the workplace longer or even
return to work because the device allows for completely hands-free
computing. The PCEye Mini allows users to communicate and stay in
touch online by effortlessly connecting with others via email, text
messaging, Skype, Facebook®and other social media. Enabling users to
surf the web, connect with friends online, play games, turn on the
lights or TV, or even make spreadsheets and documents using only
their eyes ultimately gives the user greater personal freedom and
independence.

"Our users are playing competitive chess, performing stand-up comedy,
directing internationally recognized films, working professionally as
artists, and even going before Congress with the aid of their
technology. We're opening up a new realm of possibilities for
individuals with physical challenges," added Ruben.

The PCEye Mini featuring IS4 eye tracker will be displayed January
5-8, 2017 at CES 2017 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall
2, Booth 26602.
