Open source eye tracking platform.
Pupil is a project in active, community driven development. Pupil Core mobile eye tracking hardware is accessible, hackable, and affordable. The software is open source and written in
C++ when speed is an issue.
Our vision is to create tools for a diverse group of people interested in learning about eye tracking and conducting their eye tracking projects.

There are a number of ways you can interact with Pupil Core software as a developer:
- Use the API: Use the network based real-time API to communicate with Pupil over the network and integrate with your application.
- Develop a Plugin: Plugins are loaded at runtime from the app bundle. Note: if your plugin requires Python libraries that are not included in the application bundle, then you will need to run from source.
- Run from Source: Can't do what you need to do with the network based api or plugin? Then get ready to dive into the inner workings of Pupil and run from source!
