Title: Head tracking with CyMouse?
Post by: shawnmichal on March 03, 2015, 05:04:51 AM
Hi there,

The effect of head tracking in that video looked so incredible, I dare to ask a non-Wiimote question: shouldn't you be able to do the same thing on a PC with a CyMouse (seen on sale
for $60)? This device supposedly tracks the xyz position of a detector on your forehead. I bet the changing point of view would be very easy to implement in any 3D graphics for an experienced programmer. Stereo shutter glasses also exists for PCs for less than $100, so your DARPA-quality Virtual Reality should be pretty straightforward to obtain. The CyMouse webpage hasn't been updated since 2004, but you can still buy it, and I suppose it works.
