This is great. Keeping UVs at 90 degrees never occurred to me but it makes so much sense it seems obvious in retrospect
Unless I'm mistaken, this is how Shadow of the Colossus handles the fur on the Colossi
Awesome breakdown Simon!
This miniaturized Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is the second evolution of the original and widely successful NavChip that precisely measures angular velocity and linear acceleration.
The NavChip’s robust architecture and advanced signal processing techniques enable a level of performance unmatched in size class. The resulting architecture and patented compensation algorithms are one of a kind and, coupled with its miniature size and environmental ruggedness, make NavChip perfect for small yet demanding applications. Using sophisticated robotic systems, each NavChip undergoes detailed analysis, calibration, and subsequent performance verification over a wide temperature range to assure a highly reliable solution.
The NavChip is especially well-suited for embedded applications where extremely small size, weight, and power consumption are required. It is fully factory-calibrated and temperature compensated over an operating range of -40°C to +85°C.

NavChip Evaluation Kit
A NavChip evaluation kit is available to simplify the evaluation and integration of the Thales Visionix NavChip.
The NavChip evaluation kit comes with all of the equipment necessary to interface the NavChip to a host processor, through either a USB of RS-232 interconnect. The kit includes a NavChip, a NavChip adapter board, a USB cable, and software tools that allow detailed analysis of the NavChip performance.
With 1,000’s of installations worldwide, the IS-900 is the system of choice for precise position and orientation (6-DOF) tracking in military & industrial simulators, immersive displays, virtual prototyping and film/video production. Based on InterSense’s patented inertial-ultrasonic hybrid tracking technology, the IS-900 system is immune to metallic interference, while offering smooth, robust real-time tracking in demanding environments. From CAVEs® to Powerwalls® to simulators, the IS-900 system is a proven solution providing accurate and smooth movements with low latency to enable realistic, intuitive interaction between the user and the application content.
For immersive displays the IS-900 system can be configured with a MicroTrax™ Head Tracker for use with passive or active stereo glasses, a MicroTrax Wand for interaction with virtual content, and a MicroTrax Hand Tracker for use with virtual and haptic gloves. Wireless options for this devices are available along with a Docking Station to provide a convenient and elegant solution for recharging the wireless MicroTrax devices.
With its scalable architecture and superior performance, the IS-900 system has become the industry standard in flight and weapons simulators. The inertial and ultrasonic components of the system are available in OEM configurations for seamless integration into weapons, helmet mounted displays, flight & vehicle simulators and air defense simulators. The performance and integration features of the IS-900 system provide a realistic user experience while preventing negative training.
IS-1200+ HObIT System
The IS-1200+ HObiT (Hybrid Optical-Intertial Tracking System) is the industry’s latest and most advanced optical and inertial based 6-DOF tracking system. The system provides precise 6-DOF tracking data utilizing a fusion of inertial-optical technology. Ideal for augmented & virtual reality applications, simulation & training, robotic navigation and more.
The IS-1200+ HObIT low-power, small-sized package can be head-worn with minimal impact or integrated into any object for virtually unlimited tracking. The power and interface for the IS-1200+ HObIT comes from a USB port for flexibility and ease of integration into your tracking application.
The IS-1200+ HObIT is delivered fully factory calibrated and simple-to-use. Fiducial constellation can be installed and mapped to ~50 microns accuracy in just a few minutes using new VisualMapper software provided with the IS-1200+ HObIT. Once installed, the sensor is always ready without need for additional calibration. For use on vehicles, an auto-harmonization algorithm allows the system to self-align the fiducial constellation with the vehicle INS or attitude reference.
