Trackclip Pro on right side of headset?

Post by luke33 » Fri Feb 19, 2016 1:09 pm

Hi, will TrackIR work with Trackclip Pro mounted on right side of headset? I know its not possible, I plan to DIY somehow. I have microphone on left side. Thanks for answer.

luke33,

The way that it is made it is meant only to be mounted to the left side.

This would be a round about way to have it on your right side, but let me tell you, you will have the best interpretation of your head movements ever.

Mount the camera on a cheap tripod (camera type) then set the TrackIR camera up behind your head. The pro clip will work on the right side of your headset because it will be facing the other way. The software will allow you to reverse the movements. With the TrackIR camera set at the same height and center of the pro-clip it will provide the best interpretations of your head movement. In most cases the TrackIR camera is either slightly high or slightly low when set on top of the monitor or below the monitor. I've tested this and it works Great!

Cheers

Metabo,

Mounting it behind you would do the trick. Good thinking!
