This achievement proves the excellence of the company’s technology on the global stage once again. The event is an exhibition created to support the growth of startups at GITEX Global, the 42nd largest information and communication exhibition in the Middle East and Africa.
This year’s Innovation Cup is worth USD 175,000 in total prize money, and a total of 17 companies that passed the preliminary round were selected from among thousands of startups from all around the world. VisualCamp won the second-ranked Future Innovators Award and received USD 50,000 in credit.

At the Innovation Cup, VisualCamp introduced “SeeSo,” an AI-based eye-tracking software solution that does not require separate hardware. This is an eye-tracking technology that anyone can easily experience through mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets anytime, anywhere and that overcomes the limitations of existing eye-tracking hardware devices. In addition to winning the Innovation Cup, VisualCamp’s eye-tracking technology has already been recognized worldwide with wins at the CES Innovation Awards and MWC Global Mobile Awards.
