Question for those with Oculus / Vive / etc.

Recommended Posts

 

If you are lucky enough to have a VR set already, and have tried any of the supported sims with it, could you tell me bow the following works?

 

You have you super-immersive display. Everything looks awesome, you are holding on to your yoke/stick, all good.

 

Then you have to reach out for some of you other gear like throttle, panel, etc. But... You can't see the real world..

 

How exactly would that work..?

Well, with VR that either has a built-in camera or sensors elsewhere, they can superimpose the position of your hands.

 

That said, ideally, you have a physical dashboard full of knobs and switches that matches the positions of the ones in the sim, and the VR system allows you to "see" your hand reaching out and turning knobs that you actually feel.

 

Better yet, you have a home cockpit with a greenscreen outside the cockpit. The VR goggles have stereo vision, which lets you see everything, but replaces greenscreen with out-the-window views.

 

That would probably be best.
