thanks Hellfire257 and Crunch for the pointing-out, the heating issues are very important, cause radiating of most monitors are just on the top

I tried taping it to the wall behind the monitor to allow more movement tracking.

Oh my gosh! I believe you'v just solved all my trouble.The rear leg of the stand---that's the point. I never notice that rear part can be rotated since I bought the TIR couple of months ago. How careless I am! Thanks buddy! I'm loving this forum and DCS!

Anyone know how to make it stick to the new 2014 slim iMac 27" without an ugly glob of blu-tack?

In addition to the fixation, it's also useful to adjust the place of the Track IR camera.

I'm not an engineer, so I'm using a machtbox and tape

Is there any better solution?
okay some interesting ideas posted here, my solution was rather unique because I broke my stand. So I use a dab of hot glue and an old security camera ball joint mount. Couple of high-strength magnets so it is removable and problem solved...! now I have it mounted on its own arm telescoping from a camera tripod which actually sits on my desk behind the monitors, which I can then reposition anywhere within Eye shot and completely free of the monitor. I will try to get a picture of it and post additionally, I will have the old-style IR reflectors and instead of using the the bill of a baseball cap. I clip it onto the headband of my headphones.

it's interesting for sure and smart.But the question is,will it be low for the eye-shot if the camera is on the desk instead of on the monitor and how is the angle of the camera above the desk? I'm very glad to see how does the tripod look like.
