Hi guys I've got a qustion for the trackIR3/not pro/ owners.
Is it normal for this device,when active, to overheat? When I touch it with my fingertips after a few minutes work its really hot....
tnx in advance!

Hmmmm. It's probably just warm from the Infrared lamps. I'm sure if it is just warm to the touch, it is okay. Is it giving you specific problems?

no other problems for now,but I've got mine for only 2 days....

I've had my TrackIr operational for the last 50 minutes. To the touch, it feels like it is at 100 to 120 degrees fahrenheit. I believe this is normal.

If you are really concerned, you could post here at the Naturalpoint forums:


I didn't see any info on over heating so it's probably normal.

Got to be honest I've got the same model as you and havn't really "felt" it, until your post, and yep it is pretty hot, but also pretty cool!!
