EDTracker Pro - affordable 3-axis head tracking

#1

I wonder, as development progresses further down the road, could the dev’s consider supporting or testing out for themselves the EDTracker Pro, an open source project to provide simple, affordable 3-axis head tracking for PC gamers.

I’m holding off buying on until next year but have been following it since the beginning. A good 3 axis head tracker. DIY build or the ‘pro’ version for about £40+cable.

I believe it was Flavien or Keith in one of the videos that said TrackIR and the free alternative will be supported.
I am in the (very slow) process of building my own IR head tracker using the FreeTrack designs.

TrackIR has actually reached out to us and is going to provide us with a dev kit. EDTracker is something we would still need to look into more thoroughly.

Ok thanks for letting us know.

The the £45 EDTracker Pro will have to do for me.

Any chance on getting that billboard from TrackIR? :wink: That would actually work for ingame lore as well. “Use the best HUD monies can buy!”

I have my DIY kit…I just need to make it first go without stuffing up the soldering :stuck_out_tongue:

When I eventually purchase one it will be the pre-built pro version.

Yeah I had to go the budget route. Pounds to AUD is a killer :smiley:
