Norwegian Army Driving Armoured Vehicles Using Oculus Rift


The Oculus Rift is not just for fun and killing people while playing games. It may be used for real killing purposes by the Norwegian army.
The Norwegian Army is now trying Oculus Rift gaming glasses in Norwegian armoured vehicles. The effect can best be described as sitting in a transparent vehicle. Teknisk Ukeblad got to try out an early development version at the Rena test field with a prototype of Oculus Rift and the specially developed camera system. With cameras positioned on both sides of the vehicle and the special glasses, the tank operators have a 360 degree view from the driverβ€˜s seat, even with the hatches battened down.
