    Purchased Driver4VR recently for my Pimax 4K (only 3DOF Rotation Tracking)

    Need a recommendation for a Head-only Position Tracking System suitable for a small short distance in a 90 cm Radius and below.

    I’m only interested in Flight Simulation, so my sitting position is 80 cm away from the Monitor, so the 3DOF head movements are below a 90° cm Radius.

    I checked Kinect and PS Move and found out that their minimum spacing gap starts at 100 cm. For Wii Motion-Tracking I’m also not sure if it works below 90 cm.

    Are there any other alternative solutions?
    PS. I hope the Driver4VR investment was not in vain…

    There is also OpenTrack. That works for pretty close distance.
    I have not made video yet about this however.
    I have seen quite lot of pepole u se it.

    As far as I know, OpenTrack connects to Smartphones.
    Smartphones have 3dof rotation tracking:

    I’m looking for a 3dof position tracking sensor, like for e.g. Antilatency:

    you see in video that OpenTrack works there with PC.
    It provides 3dof position that you can use for headset.
    Would you be interested to use antilatency?

    Again
    OpenTrack can work with any type of Hardware Tracking.
    My question was not about what kind of Software binds Hardware to PC; but what sort of Hardware catches the 3dof POSITION tracking for narrow distances.

    What you see in the video above is a smartphone with 3dof ROTATIONAL tracking!

    I am looking for a Hardware 3dof Position Tracking system that works below 80 cm distance from the sensor.

    ok. i looked at youtube video and I assumed by mistake that it is for opentrack 🙂
    what I mean is this. but it has some limitations like fov of leds that I have is 120 degree. would that be acceptable for you?
    need a bit more testing on that.
