They're just prostituting the Polaroid name. Soon they will have squeezed out all of its goodwill, if they haven't done so already.
One thing I'd like to point out is that eyeball tracking is not necessarily a holy grail and it is certainly not the place to start. You can get excellent results from "lite" usability testing with equipment no more sophisticated than a computer running your app, a notepad and a pencil, and the developer(s) looking on as someone tries to use the product. I've done it that way any number of times and have watched developers be flattened, just stunned, by the usability issues this simple and inexpensive method uncovers.

The best book I've used, long out of print, on usability testing is "A Practical Guide to Usability Testing" by Dumas and Redish. I used it to implement cheap-and-easy usability testing at a couple different companies. In my mind, it's the gold standard.
