introducing the VIVE Tracker 3.0 and the VIVE Facial Tracker. As the name suggests, the VIVE Tracker 3.0 is a refresh of the tracker HTC has offered for VR headsets, and it’s arriving with a refined design and better battery life. The VIVE Facial Tracker, meanwhile, is a companion to the VIVE Pro Eye that will allow for more accurate face tracking across the board.
First, the VIVE Facial Tracker. HTC says that the the add-on can track up to 38 different facial movements, and when it’s paired with the VIVE Pro Eye, users can enable full-face tracking. The device has a sub-10 millisecond response time and uses dual cameras to capture the movements of the bottom half of your face. It can also track in low-light environments thanks to infrared illumination.
