New Head Tracking Solutions

Recommended Posts

There is a new smart phone app just out which tracks your head position using the phone camera, and feeds it to Opentrack via wifi. Its called SmoothTrack and sells for $9.99 / £9.99

After a bit of usual tweaking of Opentrack settings I have got it working really well on BOS. Very impressed. No wires / headsets / LEDs / special cameras and very cheap. Would recommend it.

 

Here are the links:-

Interesting - I use a wireless headtracker but still find it cumbersome - also end up looking a tit.

 

Can't help but think this would be a lot easier to set up if the program ran on Win 10 and could use my PS2 webcam that is already set up for headtracking.  But then again the PS2 probably doesn't have the resolution.

My phone connects to Windows 10 on my PC via Wifi. No problems. Obviously no camera apart from the one on the phone. Position your phone at the centre base of your monitor. It uses the front facing camera on the phone, and the phone screen can be dimmed to stop distraction etc.
