Oculus has The Eye Tribe acquired. This is a startup that specializes in eyetracking software.

That leaves a representative of Oculus know, reports Bloomberg. The startup consists of sixteen people who work on software for the tracking of the eyes.

Both companies have no details about the deal. It is also not known how many staff moved to Oculus as part of Facebook, make.

How Oculus technology, The Eye Tribe wants to use, is also not disclosed. For example, it may be that the technology can be used for navigating through menus, so that users do not have the controller, have to use their head, without needing to move.

In addition, the software can be used to see where the user is exactly looking at. That can be useful for displaying ads in virtual reality, if it is so far.
