SmoothTrack provides 6-degrees-of-freedom head tracking using the high resolution camera already built into your device, passing it on to OpenTrack for use in any game that supports TrackIR
SUPPORTS ANY DEVICE WHICH CAN INSTALL GOOGLE AR SERVICES.
"The best new controller on the market will only set you back $9.99. It's a smartphone app called SmoothTrack, and if you're flying a plane on PC, you need to check it out." - Polygon
It's a near magical experience to seamlessly slightly move your head and have your game perspective immediately play along (the movements in the game are magnified so that you only have to make slight movements of your head to control the camera).
- Simply lean forward to get a closer look at your Flight Simulator cockpit!
- Look a bit up to see the overhead panel of your A320!
- Simply shift your head a bit to the right to see the direction of the space station you're approaching in Elite: Dangerous!
- Look a bit left before a hard left turn in Euro Truck Simulator 2!
No headset or extra equipment of any kind is required! Simply set up your device so that it can see your face. Using the on-screen controls, you can shift your perspective in-game.
Your head movements are slightly exaggerated which enables you to look out of a cockpit side window with just a slight movement of your head to the left.
Includes a dark mode to save your battery and your OLED screen!
Any game that supports the FreeTrack or TrackIR protocol will work with this, including:
- Microsoft Flight Simulator
- Microsoft FSX
- Elite: Dangerous
- IL2: Sturmovik
- Euro Truck Simulator 2
- Kerbal Space Program
- ...and many, many others!
