PST Pico

User interaction tracking when small size matters

The PST Pico is the smallest member of the PST tracking family. With a size of about a pair of glasses it fits almost anywhere. Trackings starts at realy nearby and thanks to the wide field of view the PST-Pico is your solution for user interaction tracking in small spaces. The PST Pico is the ideal interaction tracker to be placed on top of a monitor, in a small simulator or any installment where tracking needs to be integrated at very close range.
