Virtual Reality

Zion just let me know that Irrlicht is full compatible with the emagin z800, that's one of those virtual reality helmets. They seem to be called differently today, but I guess you know what I am talking about. I never had or tried one, would be fun I guess. Zion tells me that with the Irrlicht Engine demo.exe in the sdk, head traking (6 axis) works without any code change and also stereovision works perfectly. He even made a youtube video of it in action, very great. Ah, I wish I had one of those :)

four comments, already:

Wow that’s pretty cool. I’m waiting for the day when irrlicht runs on a toaster ;)

Yeah, that’s right. I bought one for my former employer shortly before I left. But the 3dvisors only has 3DOF so you can turn your head completely in all 3 axes, but there is no position tracking. Still bound to the keyboard ;-) However, position trackers cost a lot more. Maybe the Wii remote could be used for this, I don’t know if their position tracking is useful for this purpose.
