FaceTrackNoIR is a software program for monitoring head movements in real-time games. The application does not require any special accessories, just one working Web-camera.

Today, no one will be surprised by the programs and gadgets to track the movements of the head, which not only facilitate the gameplay, but also make it much more interesting. Among them is the FaceTrackNoIR program, which is able to give a head start to its analogues and win. First of all, it's free. Secondly, the user does not need to wear special devices on his head to work with the program, be it a helmet, headphones, clips, etc. To meet face-to-face with the world around you, FaceTrackNoIR only needs a Webcam connected to your computer, with which the user's head becomes a virtual joystick.

FaceTrackNoIR was created on the basis of C++ using Nokia's QT toolkit for user interface maintenance. The program is compatible with all versions of Windows (including 7 and 8). The application is based on the use of TrackIR protocol, as well as the penalty track protocol and UPD protocol, and can be used with PPJoy and VJoy. The program is compatible not only with modern PC games, but also with a number of old simulators, for example, with CFS3.

For the convenience of working with FaceTrackNoIR, you can use the quick access buttons or mouse buttons, which can be used to start and stop the virtual joystick, center the view, change the direction of view and limit the depth of field of the axis.
