    Bottom Line: If youíre into cool toys that have functionality, give this a try but donít rely on it outside of simple tasks, such as deathmatches.

    Common Usage

    What can I say about this device in terms of things I normally do such as browsing the web and checking email? The TrackIR can easily move the cursor as well as a mouse can and itís much easier moving your head than it is moving a mouse so I cant argue with itís ease and laziness factor. The only major problem that I think people will hit is that it takes time getting used to it. It takes time to adjust to the speed you move your head, the angles of visibility, and the range, and if you play games, those too. Also, the TrackIR catches onto many things that are bright...not just the silver dots. If you have a silver ring, thereís a good chance itíll see that as a dot and track according to that. The bottom line is that you probably wont save any time by using the TrackIR but itís a good break from the standard mouse and also adds just a little bit to the human laziness factor.
