Gamers searching for a head tracking system to help with in game control and simulation games may be interested in the MagicIR head tracker launched via Kickstarter this week. The head tracking system is available from roughly £33 and will be available during September 2019 if production progresses smoothly.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the infrared camera and tracking system which offers a raw resolution of 640 x 480 at 120 frames per second with a 9 ms response time and a 51.7° field of view.
“MagicIR is a head tracking input device designed for use with gaming and simulation PC titles. It is an infrared camera that tracks the position and orientation of your head and then sends that data to any of the 100+ TrackIR Enhanced games and simulations.
The IR LED Clip, included with every MagicIR purchase, attaches to the brim of a hat or visor and has three retro-reflective markers that direct infrared light back to the camera. The Track Clip Pro, which attaches to most PC headsets, comes with active LED markers and is useful when you need to track from further away.”
