Motion Tracker

A motion tracker is a sensor integrated into a VR interface that is able to track movement of body parts such as eyes, head, or hands in real-time. Typically they are optical based or inertia based. By tracking movement in real-time, they are able to have the system respond. Gesture and gaze control interfaces work in this manner, as do head trackers.

Cheapening the Cost of Motion Sensors
Motion sensors are starting to creep into a whole plethora of applications. They are the linch pins of haptics, of 3D pointers, of stress based sensor networks and locomotive VR interfaces. Yet, there's a problem. Small, discrete motion sensors, tiny enough to be built into larger devices the size say, of a Wii-remote or a 6 ounce HMD, are extremely difficult and expensive to produce.
