Today TrinityVR, a start-up company that is focused on building a scalable input platform for virtual reality, has announced that their Trinity Magnum (a precision motion controller that targets FPS games for head-mounted displays, such as the Oculus Rift) will support 360 degree tracking.

This will allow their Magnum to leverage the most comprehensive tracking options for VR, supporting both overhead and multiple camera configurations and allowing players to use the Magnum with full 360 positional and orientation motion tracking in combination with Omni-directional treadmills or other full body tracking systems.

TrinityVR has further established the Magnum as the leading accessory for third-party input devices for VR by signing three new hardware agreements and making two new games compatible with the Magnum. These announcements all coincide with the Trinity Magnum Kickstarter  campaign.

The hardware partnerships that TrinityVR has signed on include the award winning Cyberith Virtualizer, the PrioVR (which provides body motion tracking), and Striker VR (which brings ultra-realistic recoil to virtual weaponry). The two new games are the survival sandbox MMO FPS, Beasts of Prey, and the sci-fi arcade racer, Radial G.
