Cool! WIll you be offering your software to the public?
Absolutely... The program stores normalized values and you can set your servo limits when you export.Will this program have the ability to set servo limits, since each skull has slightly different limits?
I looked into a bunch of different suggestions (one suggestion was even to try using the Wii remote hack). Only problem I found was that most systems only did a X,Y,Z translation. Which I'm sure with a bit of work, I could get to work. The TrackIR has built in Yaw, Pitch & Roll tracking which made my job very easy. Plus you can't beat the free SDK!Nice job. Nice to have a simple user interface for this.
I looked into all the head tracking stuff about a year ago and developed my own system for free based on a cheapo webcam. The TrackIR was the first thing I looked at but I decided to find a cheaper way. There is a ton of open source stuff out there to choose from coming out of virtual reality controls for flight simulator programs. Basically just face or head positions translated into joystick or mouse movements. Mine looks for a single black dot (sticky) on my face.
I'm open to any ideas... I personally just re-sing the song and let VSA interpret it.I agree that this would make programming my skulls oh so much easier. I would for sure be interested. What about jaw movement, don't suppose that is captured also? That would make it completely over the top.
The software is FREE, but the TrackIR is going to cost you.Very Nice!
It is similar to parlay (if you have used that). It will create a text file that can be imported into VSA. You will set the servo limits and channel when you export the data.This is really quite exciting (and not too expensive, either)!
So what does this software do in relation to VSA (ie: does it gather the information and then you import the info into VSA, or something else)?
When (roughly) do you think the software will be ready for download?
TrackIR is a hardware system consisting on an IR Camera and the head piece (with 3 reflectors) that you see on the Wii hat. It is used to track the movement and send to data to my software. A person would typically be wearing the hat.So what is the trackIR ?I see the pictures but what does it do?it just records/tracks the movement and puts it in data form?or is it a powered mount that makes the head move?And why does your guy remind me of Ron Howard?
