Cheap Head Tracker?

Post by BlackHawk*K » 22 Oct 2014, 21:15

hi all. this looks like a project for the technically minded....

i know the track IR has gone down a bit since they first came out.. but, for the TRUE cheapskate... this may be the salutation!

http://www.edtracker.org.uk/

this website has the program and the tech schematics to build a USB Gyro system with accelerometers. no need for a detection unit or a reflective thing on a hat or glasses. all for around 30 bucks?

this site also has a link to even a cheaper alternative. it can use a infra red LED or even a regular LED and a webcam.

there was another one i didnt look at. it seemed rather cool though.

enjoy! :)
