I don't like to wear a hat, and I don't like to wear a headset. Are there other options for the TrackIR to track me, besides these two methods (hat and headset-clip)? What are they?

Thank you!!

Check some of the headtracking posts, they might have some alternatives.

when I was using the old TrackIR2, I went and got a pair of clear tint, cheap shooting glasses from wall mart and put the dot in the center above my nose....but I'm not sure if 1 dot will work with the pro system....

If you have TiR4,then i think there is no alternative.I would say the track clip is the least intrusive.

Yep a stick from a Lilac tree in the backyard. Any stick or twig bent at the right angle will do. At the end of the stick is a ball covered with reflective tape. When I move to TIR4 guess I'll have to re-engineer the system.

I didn`t think terriblysilly had a TIR yet. Last i remember (not long ago) he was asking about it. Now he`s got one?

I`d say live with a hat on your head, what`s so wrong with that?

I personally had no interest in TrackIR BECAUSE of the hat(okay so Im wearing a hairband, so what? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif. Once the TrackClip came out it was a done deal.

My woman makes fun of me enough when I wear the vector clip. I can only image how bad it would be if I was to wear those.

How about a sparkly diamond tiara - it won't ruin your mullet, and if you pop out all but 4 of the stones , will give you the perfect device for that 6 degrees of freedom sensaroony http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
