NaturalPoint TrackIR 5

.. Now more affordable than ever

Hyper accurate, fully adjustable, and only three square inches in size—TrackIR 5 is the one piece of kit that discriminating gamers crave. Take advantage of our 6 DOF head tracking technology, which links your actual movement in three-dimensional space to your in-game view!Your increased situational awareness will make you the most feared competitor around. In dogfights, you'll be impossible to shake. In white-knuckle races, you'll be impossible to pass. In tactical combat, you'll be impossible to flank.

Moving Your Head Changes the View

Degrees of Freedom

There are only 6 ways you can move around in 3D space. There are 3 ways to lean, and 3 ways to rotate. The technical term for all of these movements is "6 Degrees of Freedom" (or "6DOF"). True 6DOF support is one of the main things that puts TrackIR well ahead of any other input device.

TrackIR Enhanced Mode

TrackIR is a new form of input that doesn't affect the mouse, keyboard and joysticks you are already using. Those other inputs are now able to do the things you'd expect your hands to be doing, completely independent of your new head-tracking view controller.

3D From A Flat Screen

This whole experience is commonly called a "VR fishtank" method (as opposed to the "VR Goggles" experience you may have seen in movies), because you don't have to wear any sort of headset or hardware. Everything is handled using advanced motion capture techniques.

The point of TrackIR is to make controlling your game's view completely seemless and natural. You will forget you have TrackIR setup at all, because looking at your monitor is like looking through a window into a 3D world.

Customization is the Key

What makes TrackIR much more than joystick or mouse are the ways TrackIR's software lets you customize how your movement will be processed for each of the 6 Degrees of Freedom.

You can make your left/right rotation very fast, so you can turn 180 degrees in your game by just moving an inch in real life. You can then make your up/down rotation very slow, perhaps because you're in a car and there's nothing of interest to look up or down at.

You Want 6DOF Control, Even For a 2DOF Game

TrackIR tells your game exactly where your head is, in 3D space. Not all games take full advantage of this input, because there wasn't an easy and cheap way to control your game in 3D space before TrackIR. But since TrackIR knows exactly what you're doing, it will be easier to control the game. For example, leaning to the right won't be mistaken for turning your head. That's the benefit of separately tracking all of the "6 Degrees Of Freedom" in which you can move.

TrackIR Changes Everything
