I am playing with this unexpensive 3D kit made by Google https://cardboard.withgoogle.com/ and I was wondering if we could pair it with OpenROV.
I am a huge fan of FPV for UAVs and I believe that such immersive experience with a platform like OpenROV would be a game changer.
The democratization of VR systems is a great opportunity.
Now, how can we make it happen?
The main challenge is to turn the video stream from the ROV into a 3D split screen video that can be played on an Android smartphone.
There are apps that can do that but it is not streaming ready yet: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.mobius.vrcinema
Building an Android app with this built-in feature would be great but then it generates new challenges. We would have interface the TCP IP connection to the node.js application. We could plug the ethernet jack into a wireless router... Not sure what would be the best road but having a tablet/smartphone compatible app would open many doors including the one of virtual reality.
