No, head bobbing is when the camera starts bobbing up and down when you walk.

It seems I am not the only one who gets physically ill with head bobbing. If someone wants to add it it must be an option that possibly defaults to off.

Head tracking? Like TrackIR? Unless its a mod, no, Skyrim just has head bob in vanilla.

My main reason for wanting to see a body when I look down is to make Oculus Rift support later on a bit nicer :P
In fact, its the main reason I'm so excited for this open source engine over Skywind or the likes, stuff like that is possible with native compatibility once 1.0 is done rather than a tacked on D3D library like the current method of getting Skyrim working with the Rift.
Performance needs to come up first, but that'll be one of 1.0's goals :)

No, headtracking is when NPCs (or PCs) heads turn to face something nearby. Head bobbing is when you're moving around and the and camera is shaking because you're moving.
