Gaze-Directed Steering

Gaze-Directed Steering is a travel method for inside virtual environments. It works by tracking the position of the user's head - not the eyes - and the direction the head points, determines travel direction.

The disadvantage of this is the user is unable to look around whilst they move. Additionally, some method of telling the world when they desire to start/stop moving is necessary.
