I recently learned about TrackIR.  I called the manufacturer, NaturalPoint, and asked if their TrackIR would work with a Mac and was told it would not.  This is especially confusing since in one of the settings windows in X-Plane 10, it shows an option (check box) to enable TrackIR.  

I would love to use TrackIR or something like it.  

Can someone help clear up this problem for me

Thanks,  Mike

There are other software that do the same... almost free.. (need a good webcam 30fps o more and 3 IR-leds + a resistor)


I don't know about other OS, but I think it's an option to search... try head tracking software. I personally use opentrack.

WOW. Just looked at   I was hoping to get something that is plug and play.  I don't want to have to become a computer scientist to use a flight sim, but that's what it looks like it has to come to.  I'm ready to give up
