VR Gear Makes RC Airplane the Coolest Toy Ever

From VRoot.org :

“Take a look at this Raw Feed post: it talks about a model RC airplane that can be controlled with virtual reality gear. Here’s a video. From the post: “A Canadian RC airplane enthusiast shows us some sweet unanticipated convergence between a model RC airplane and virtual reality gear. It works like this: The airplane is a conventional one, controlled by a wireless remote control. On the airplane is a pan-and-tilt camera, controlled also wirelessly. Here’s the cool part. The video is viewable through virtual reality goggles, which have a gyroscope built in to sense the movement of the goggles. When the wearer moves his head, the camera moves. Tragically, this is not a product you can buy, but a DIY project.”

Of course, I want one :p
