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.
