Can you imagine Occulous rift glasses and the view from a drone racing through the forest against others....pretty close here

nicely done - shades of Star Wars indeed

Well yes, I can imagine it.

Coz I done gots one.

I am now well practiced. Largely at crashing. Into quite small and innocuous things, like the earth.

And Drone racing is already a thing



And bugger Occulus Rift, try Cinemizers, with head tracking. Zeiss optics. Woohoo!!

With Oculus Rift? I hope you like nausea.

I have a DK2 and I'm not very susceptible to VR sickness. But with this sort of speed and fixed cameras you'll be ill in moments. A nice big hi resolution screen is your best bet.

I could see that....I'm a pilot so perhaps a bit less susceptible but still speed and orientation is brutal....

Retina screen it is :D
