More and more interesting developments appear with the use of the virtual reality helmet Oculus Rift. This time, engineers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology decided to use it in conjunction with a quadrocopter DJI Phantom 2. The Oculus FPV project allows the user to see a helmet video from a quadrocopter.

On the quadrocopter there is a mechanism with two cameras, the image of which in real time is broadcast to the Oculus Rift helmet, and when the head rotates the cameras rotate accordingly. The control of the quadrocopter itself is performed by a standard method - a complete remote control. Developers posted the source code, a list of all the necessary and instructions for creating on their site for anyone who wants to make a similar device with their own hands.
