TIR3 + VR Glasses, anyone using this setup?

Post by roylazarovich » Sat Jun 11, 2005 9:54 am

Hello Everyone.

This is my first post on the forum, so I'd like to first say hello.

I am a fresh new owner of a TIR3 system, in addition to the TIR3 I have also bought an Eye3D virtual reality glasses (got a good deal on eBay), as I plan to use the glasses to futher immerse myself in the game.

None of the above has yet to arrive at my door step by the way, they are making their way to a warehouse in NY where, when all packages arrive, they will be forwarded to my address in Israel.

I originally bought the glasses thinking it would enable me to move my head in angles where I would not be able to see the monitor, so I wanted a monitor that would sit right on top of my nose and allow TIR3 to track my head angle 1:1, however, speaking with NP support I came to realize this would be impossible as the TIR3 won't be able to track my head over a certain angle.

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody out there uses a similar setup to what I am about to have (eagerly waiting) and can share his experience and tips on getting more immersed in the game using this setup.

I will be very happy to hear your thoughts.

Still waiting for my new toys, but wonder if I am the only one who is going to use that setup since nobody replied...

Hello:

You should be able to mount your Vector Clip, or a single dot, on the end / top of the headset, then you will have motion control over your virtual world. I have tried this setup here with various VR goggles and it does work. Let me know how you make out. Thanks for posting.

Hi boB

Shortly after the glasses arrived I realised that was not what I was looking for, these were glasses that use a shutter system to block each eye seperately while a different image is displayed on the monitor, this gives a 3D effect but as I do not see well in one eye, it is useless to me.

What kind of 3D glasses do you have? do they have LCD screens that shows you what is shown on the screen? that's what I was looking for originally.

I am very interested in hearing your experience

If you have this type shutter glasses here is a page that explaines different types of operation. Maybe using page flip would let you see the 3D.

The Virtual Goggles/Visor I ordered is the Z800 which has microphone, speakers, head tracking and some other things that make it a good deal. But there are only a couple reviews because they have only shipped a few so far. Maybe a production problem.

I think its quite alright to post those links. I'm curious myself on how that Z800 works out for ya. Seems thought like you wouldnt need head tracking if you were using the TrackIR in the first place.

I'll do a little research myself as well on this.

I did a second page using the TrackIR and VE in a C-172.
