Ascension SpacePad:Low-cost, six degrees-of-freedom tracker with a flat transmitter for ease of use and placement. Designed     Online:
    'theblurb' is the promotional marketing literature provided for this product.
Low-cost, six degrees-of-freedom tracker with a flat transmitter for ease of use and placement. Designed specifically for integration into OEM products. SpacePad brings low-cost magnetic tracking to virtual reality game developers and designers of interactive experiences.

Use SpacePad to instantaneously determine the position and orientation of one or more lightweight sensors attached to a person experiencing virtual reality. Its outputs furnish the motion cues needed to interact in real time with your virtual world.

SpacePad smashes the existing price-per-sensor barrier. You can now buy a robust four-sensor tracker offering greater accuracy for less than the price of any competitive tracking product.

SpacePad takes its name from the design of its unique magnetic-field transmitting antenna. The antenna is completely flat. It consists of a loop of wire locatable in a pad near the user. Antenna size and placement are user-adjustable. SpacePad lets you track motions of multiple players simultaneously in one or more game pods.

You will find SpacePad perfectly suited for VR games in location-based entertainment and ARCade settings. It lets you, for the first time, locate your own transmitter loops in the base of a game pod, configure loops between adjacent pods, embed loops in a sit-down module, or even on a wall to create a virtual room. Loops may also be configured to accommodate multiple users in virtual rides.

Ascension SpacePad

SpacePad's single electronics card is capable of driving two transmitters and up to four sensors. Since the transmitter is just a strand of wire, you provide it yourself once we custom configure it for your application. SpacePad eliminates your recurring transmitter costs. The electronics card is compatible with PCs and all other computers with an ISA-bus slot. Additional SpacePads may be used in close proximity to one another without interference.

    q  What is the range of the device?
    a   The range is entirely flexible. Since the Transmitter is a loop of wire (basically speaker wire), The end user can configure the capture area as he likes. The capture area is a dome where the bottom is 80% of the total radius of the capture area.
    q   What specialist hardware is needed with the unit?
    a   Since the SpacePad is a legacy system, you will require an antenna breakout card for your PC which is ISA and quite large as well. You will need a large motherboard and tower PC. We recommend Soyo for the PC, who make a range of P4 Motherboards with ISA slots.
