Flying a Drone with an Oculus Rift
Controlling autonomous vehicles remotely with the use of virtual reality headsets seems like an obvious next step. Already, a few UAV companies have begun experimenting with these types of ideas by integrating Oculus Rift developer kits into their hovering quadcopters and drones. Parrot released a video on their blog showing that theydeveloped a head-tracking system for their Bebop Drone in an effort to bring FPV flights to fruition.
This sort of feels inevitable at this point and it would be a good bet that we see more and more of this kind of implementation going forward. I’m yet to try it out for myself but I can only imagine how that birds eye view feels.
