InterSense Announces New MicroTrax User Devices for the IS-900 Inertial-Ultrasonic Motion Tracking System

Bedford, Mass. - InterSense Inc., a market leader in precision motion-tracking technology, has released new MicroTrax user interface devices for its IS-900 inertial-ultrasonic motion-tracking system.

The new MicroTrax devices offer a small form-factor head tracker that facilitates the use of passive and active stereo glasses in 3D applications, a smaller clip-on power pack, an ergonomic hand-held wireless wand designed specifically for immersive display applications, an easy way to insert batteries, and a docking station in which to store and recharge the devices when not in use.

Additional benefits of the new MicroTrax devices include:

The MicroTrax head tracker and wireless transmitter are significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, increasing user comfort during long sessions. The ergonomically designed wand enables users to more intuitively interact with the immersive environment.

The new docking station brings convenience by providing in-situ recharging capability and a common resting place for the MicroTrax devices when not in use. All devices were designed to allow for quick, easy replacement of spare batteries (included) by users.

All the devices were designed with consistent elegance in mind, yet are durable enough to withstand rigorous handling during operation.
