The SteamVR Tracking technology is the same that powers the HTC Vive headset, and it comprises multiple components, all familiar to anyone who's used a Vive. First, there's a laser-firing base station (shark nose-straps not included), and another two optional base stations for full 360 tracking. Next up, there's a sensor kit and Inertial Measurement Unit for placing on the tracked object, which can be a bog-standard VR headset or something else entirely.
