Tobii I-Series devices are built to withstand everyday use, regardless if the devices are carried by hand or mounted on a wheelchair. With scratch resistant Gorilla Glass™, a solid state hard drive (SSD) that withstands impacts, a clean, modern design with integrated eye tracker* as well as no cables or other components sticking out, I-Series devices are less prone to getting caught on things or breaking.
Being IP43 classified means that the I-Series devices are proven to resist moisture and particles.
Hot swappable batteries give you up to nine hours of non-stop communication on one charge. With power optimized settings such as the built-in auto brightness adjustment and the unique Wake on Gaze™ and Sleep on Gaze™, you can conserve battery life giving you 24 hour access to communication, without charging. Hot swappable batteries allow for endless communication as they can be charged and changed without disrupting usage.
Put your I-Series device to sleep or wake it up by simply gazing at an “eye button” located outside of the screen. For example, you might want to read in bed before going to sleep. Simply turn off the device when you are done, and when you wake up, quickly follow the illuminators that guide you to the eye button and turn on the device. No blue computer screen keeping you awake at night.
With a wide range of mounting options you can communicate from any location, in bed, at the dinner table, at school etc. The wedge design and auto screen rotation lets you stand the device upright for gaze interaction, without having to mount the device, or lay it down for touch interaction. While on the move, a built in handle makes carrying between locations easy. Tobii I-Series devices also come with a reversible mounting plate that supports both Rehadapt and Daessy mounting systems for use at home or school.

Purposeful, Durable Design
Tobii I-Series devices are designed with a purpose – to adapt to your needs and provide more communication independence than ever before, while standing up to the hardships of everyday life. Take it along with you without worrying about damage. Use it in noisy environments and still be heard. Switch users at school without losing your personal settings.

Communicate clearly, even in noisy environments. The two built-in speakers feature closed speaker boxes, EQ settings optimized for speech and a special speaker mesh that provide the highest quality sound without distortion, even at loud levels. I-Series devices do not contain fans, thus eliminating a potential source of noise. All of this gives you a clear voice, even at loud volumes.
Modern design that is built to last
With a clean, modern design, integrated eye tracker and no cables or other components sticking out, I-Series devices are easy to clean, less prone to getting caught on things and do not draw unnecessary attention. A solid state hard drive (SSD) allows for fast startups and withstands impacts, while an IP43 classification means that I-Series devices are resistant to objects larger than 1mm and have passed tests where water is sprayed at a 60 degree angle for 5 minutes.
Three quick access buttons on the side, two of which can be programmed to say a phrase, dial a number, navigate to a page or do whatever you like. The third one gives you quick access to the Tobii Communicator home screen.
Scratch resistant capacitive screen
Engineered for a combination of thinness, lightness, and damage-resistance, Gorilla Glass™ is often used as the cover glass for portable electronic devices.
For the first time, it can be found on an AAC device. Another useful feature is “capacitive touch”, which lets you control the device with the slightest touch and requires minimal muscle strength to operate.
Don’t worry about losing pagesets, files, pictures or other data. A 32 GB SD card can be automatically backed up every week with whatever information you define and allows you to scroll back to the last three backups, so no communication time is lost.
