platform for eyetracking and egocentric vision research
Pupil headsets are 3D printed frames that you wear like a pair of glasses.
Cameras record your field of view and your eye movements. Data is correlated with Pupil Capture software.
Pupil is designed as a modular system to support the diverse needs of researchers in the fields of eye tracking and egocentric vision.
To use your Pupil headset connect it to a Linux, Mac OS, or Windows computer via USB 2.0.
Pupil Capture is the software used with your Pupil headset.
Pupil Capture receives video and audio streams, detects your pupil, tracks your gaze, tracks markers in your environment, streams data in real-time over the network, and records data in an open format.
Open Source Software
We believe in open source. All Pupil code is released with open source licenses.
A lot of work went into making the software modular and accessible. The majority of the codebase is written in Python.
We have developed a plugin structure that enables you to extend Pupil Capture and Pupil Player to suit your needs

A lot of design and engineering thought & energy has gone into getting the ergonomics of the headset just right.
It is designed to fit snugly, securely, and comfortably. Cameras can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of users. The headset is made from laser sintered PA12, an extremely flexible, durable, and lightweight material.
Technical Specifications & Performance
Eye tracking performance is determined in equal parts by the hardware and software.
We constantly work on our algorithms and codebase, so you can expect steady improvement and new features. In a test from 2014 we measured a gaze accuracy of 0.6° with a precision of 0.08°. For more details check out our technical report.
Pupil headsets connect to a Tablet, Laptop, or PC via USB2.0. The headset is configurable with different cameras, so you can get the hardware you need: from high resolution capture at 30hz to low latency (5.7ms) 120hz eye and scene video.
See the configurator for options, full technical specs for cameras, and sample videos.
Modular & Hackable
Pupil is modular - make the headset you need for your research.
If we don’t have the configuration you need, customize it yourself. Our camera mount geometry and electrical interface is open.
We also like work with users to create custom solutions. Get in touch!
