Last week we posted a video shot with a drone that gives you a first person view of what it would be like to be Superman. One of the thoughts we had while watching the video was “imagine what this would look like if you were wearing an Oculus Rift?”
Naturally, someone was way ahead of us.
Check out this video by YouTube user Deigo Araos, in which he uses his Oculus Rift Virtual Reality headset to control his Parrot AR Drone. He steers the drone with the tilt of the head, sees what it sees, goes where it goes, and -try to warp your brain around this- watches himself watching himself.
