Introduction to 6 DOF

There are six axes of movement in three-dimensional space three for rotation (yaw, pitch, and roll) and three for translation (x, y, and z). These axes are collectively termed Six Degrees of Freedom (6 DOF). TrackIR's three point tracking allows all 6 DOF to be tracked, resulting in a precise correlation of actual and in-game movement.
