View Full Version : OT eyetrackir, 360º field of view on a 21" screen

all right first you implement bob with the gunsight effect to know the real size of a 109 or spit

then do you remember how in the blue thunder the bullets were aimed by tracking where the eye looks, the same in the apache

the idea is to pan for example 3?? on the game for every 1?? you move your eye

on that way 120?? of your screen would became 360??

Current trackIR is already scaled. It's why you can view the world through a 20" window of your monitor. Also, your "gunsight view" would actually result in a distorted picture where mathmatecially the model might be "the real world size" but the resulting effect of projecting that on a 2D screen (either eyepiece or monitor) would end up looking very distorted and perspective would be off.

As usual, you are choosing to ignore some very real problems with your idea and simply deciding to ignore them doesn't make them go away.

Oh, and the Apache viewsight doesn't aim the bullets but the gun. The bullets still move in a straight line once they leave the gun--it just tracks according to line of sight--essentially what trackIR does today.

You really, really need to learn a lot more about some of these things work as you are making assumptions about things with no basis in fact.

A few simple free body diagrams would show you where you are going wrong. You should learn how to do them.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

"A lady came up to me on the street, pointed to my leather flight jacket and said, "Don't you know a cow was murdered for that jacket?" I replied menacingly, "I didn't know I left witnesses. Now, I'll have to kill you too."

Forget it Sensei, he believes that free body diagrams are nonsense b/c you have to draw every force acting on the system.

Also, I love his assumption on how the TrackIR works (you'd think he would actually own one before spouting this stuff) and the "gunsight effect". As if anyone using a TrackIR actually moves their head more than a few inches.

Wouldn't it hurt to stick one of those "dot" things on your eyeball?
