Rift Users To See Moon Through Robot
A group from Carnegie Mellon wants to send a robot to the Moon to beam live pictures of the Moon to Oculus Rift headset users, reported technology reporter Jane Wakefield of the BBC. Andy the robot is intended to swing into action as a robot on a mission to transform education about space. The team has a plan to land the robot on the Moon to act as eyes for those still on Earth. A key component to all this is the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. Andy has motion-controlled vision. With that headset, movements of the user’s head will be tracked and sent back to Andy’s camera, in order for it to match where the user is looking.
