re: Black Friday TrackIR Special?

I have been interested in purchasing TrackIR 5 for some time and was wondering if any of you have seen a Black Friday special on this product or if you have found a website offering a good price on it.

Thanks,

Hey Red, Have you looked at Tobii EyeX? I don't personally own but it replaced TrackIR5 for most folks.

It tracks eyes with a bar that goes under monitor and doesn't require attaching anything to your body or headset. It tracks your eyes. It is worth looking at. Also, it is a little bit cheaper.(usually around 95 USD)

In His Service,

Phil "The Serious Dad"

re: Black Friday TrackIR Special?

Hello Phil,

Never actually heard of the Tobii Eyex before. Went to YouTube to see reviews of this device but found that even though it is a brilliant technology it will not exactly do what I'm looking for. My main goal is to use the TrackIR with flight simulators and the capability to zoom in and out (or moving your head forwards/backwards) doesn't seem to be available on Tobii's device.

The other thing I believe won't help me is the position of the track bar at the bottom of my monitor. I have a 27" monitor and it's pretty set on its place. I saw some people having trouble with the viewing angle for the sensors towards the eyes.

Greatly appreciate you letting me know about this technology!

re: Black Friday TrackIR Special?

Unfortunately, TrackIR 5s are extremely popular and don't go on sale too often. I waited around and searched for a good deal then finally settled for paying the full price for mine. Every now and then you get lucky, though. Cyber monday is coming up November 28. You might be able to find a deal then but until that time there is this:
