The lights are on
Most Oculus Rift experiences have geared towards the virtual, but Intuitive Aerial is experimenting with real world applications by attaching a camera to a remote control flying machine.
Using the Oculus Rift, the pilot could see what the flying device was seeing. He was even able to look around with the Oculus Rift's motion control capabilities. You can check out the video below, where the pilot can see himself piloting the flying machine from the viewpoint of the machine. It's pretty mind blowing.

This thing may take off as a do all for science and art.
I could totally see this becoming implemented with the un-manned aquatic vehicles!
That Swedish accent.
Lol "Black holes really suck", that's a knee slapper.
That's amazing. I've always been skeptical of VR stuff like this but the Oculus is making me a believer.
The Oculus Rift is brilliant, I can't wait for the kind of stuff people are going to come with after its official release.
I may never buy one, but I sure would like to try one out.
Holy expletive! This thing may end up revolutionizing everything, let alone gaming!

This thing just keeps impressing me.
Seems like people are doing some pretty cool stuff with Oculus Rift.
