Norwegian army driving armoured vehicle using Oculus Rift
The Norwegian army is testing Oculus Rift to let the driver "see trough" their armoured vehicles, using cameras on each side.
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 driver‘s seat, even with the hatches battened down.
