What is head tracking?

Head tracking is used in many first-person games to measure the movement of your head in the real world, and reflect that movement in the virtual (game) world. This can greatly enhance your situational awareness, giving you an edge in competitive gameplay. It makes many a game feel more immersive and fun.

Check out an example video of how it all started!

What is an EDTracker?

EDTracker is our take on head tracking. It uses a slightly different approach to other methods (optical point tracking), instead employing readily available and cheap MEMS gyroscopic sensors, as commonly found in mobile phones and fitness devices, to measure the movement of your head in 3 degrees and represent that to your PC or Mac as a simple virtual joystick.
