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 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 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). For a full list of supported titles (and the DOF they support), see the TrackIR websites Enhanced Games page or check the list of popular titles below.
The device itself is tiny, measuring only a few centimetres in all directions and with its 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 youll be up and running in moments.
