"Where is Johnny..."

Post by Magic Man » Fri Apr 24, 2009 4:16 pm

Full page ad in PC Pilot - Johnny Five, he's alive... or rather, TrackIR 5 is alive... yet I don't see anything here on the public site?

Yep, must be the right age I guess... :)

Looking good, can't wait for the details etc.

im just hoping it has support for more than games, like google earth would be great, or sketchup, or 3d apps, that would be a great extension to a mouse or a space navigator.

Yep also saw the ad in PCPilot when I got it yesterday.
Looks good but I am left wondering if it was a photoshop edit or should we be expecting to see a wireless Johnny???

Great news, I wonder what has been improved.
TrackIR4 is already close to perfect !

I am afraid you will still have a cord, but it is a nice one. :)

The launch is May 1st.

:)) some facts:

3 times the resolution of TrackIR 4
Larger field of view
New image processing design for more accurate, smoother tracking
Improved sunlight filtering
Detachable base to improve durability
Completely new software with more options, and a much more user friendly interface (software will work with TrackIR 3 with Vector, TrackIR 4, and TrackIR 5)
