Budget Head Tracking With Free Track and Wii Remote


UPDATE: This video is really old and I no longer have the equipment necessary to test it out or put out an updated video, good luck!

I’ve always wanted to try out head tracking but can’t afford TrackIR right now. I do have a Wii remote hanging around and thought why couldn’t that work?
