The OculusDrone Hybrid Combines The Hottest Innovations In Today’s Tech Scene

The OculusDrone Hybrid Combines The Hottest Innovations In Today’s Tech Scene

Diego Araos's hack project lets users navigate the drone with the headset.

Berlin-based developer Diego Araos has developed a way to control a Parrot AR drone with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.

His OculusDrone project allows users to control the movement of the drone with the headset by nodding or moving their head from side to side. The users are also able to see what the drone sees through the Oculus’s video feed.

Araos based the project on one of his other projects, the ardrone-swarm. The OculusDrone project is open source and the code can be found on the developer’s GitHub profile.

While this isn’t the first time an Oculus Rift has been used to control a drone, it still presents an interesting way of using two popular technologies together.

Araos uploaded a YouTube video demonstrating the project.
