The best headtracking game controller ever designed - experience real time 3D view control in video games and simulations just by moving your head! TrackIR takes your PC gaming to astonishing new levels of realism and immersion! TrackIR 5 is a major evolution in gaming input, taking NaturalPoint's proven optical tracking technology to the next level. NaturalPoint has completely redesigned the TrackIR 5 from the ground up to deliver an amazingly robust device and the basis for great new heights in the years to come.
How does TrackIR 5 differ from TrackIR 4? TrackIR 5 offers 3 times the resolution of TrackIR 4 and it has an increased field of view. TrackIR 5 features a new image processing design for more accurate, smoother tracking and a detachable base to improve durability. Perhaps the feature most prominent for Australian simulation and action gamers is the TrackIR 5's improved sunlight filtering, which improves tracking during daylight and other strong ambient lighting conditions.
How does it work? As you move in your chair and rotate your head small amounts your game-view will precisely correspond. You never have to look away from the monitor because all aspects of your motion are amplified and adjustable! The TrackIR package contains a small, wide-angle, infra-red camera and a reflector clip (to clip onto the brim of a cap) â€“ the camera detects light reflected from the clip and tracks the movement of the reflections in order to provide input to programs that support axis-based controls. In short: TrackIR turns your head movements into in-game movements. The TrackIR 5 is NaturalPoint's premium product - the best optical headtracking system available.
The TrackIR 5 provides 6DOF (Degrees-of-Freedom), which allows for yaw, pitch, roll movements, as well as movement along the X, Y and Z axes. Not all games/sims support 6DOF, but most support at least two (which are required for simple free-look movements). The device itself is tiny, measuring only a few centimetres in all directions â€“ and with itâ€™s flexible feet, is easily mountable on the top of a CRT or TFT screen and is connected via USB 2.0. Installing the software is a breeze and youâ€™ll be up and running in moments.
