vuzix VR920 VR-goggles - can I use a mouse too?

Recommended Posts

hi! expert opinion needed please!if I use the vr920, can I still use the mouse to click on switches?

Yes -- the goggles are only the screens (two for 3D with the appropriate 3D driver for your video card), plus a sensor to change the views (not by mouse nor by joystick), plus earphones and mike. It doesn't replace any of the controls you need or want to fly or control the aircraft.I tried then for a while: fun, but I couldn't wear them for long periods at a time -- after 20-30 minutes it was enough!Pete
