i am using openrov since two years now, and i ve always been a nit furstrated when doing some dive. my laptop is heavy, can t see much with the sunlight on the screen, wel, hapiness wasn t quite complete.
so i ve decided to upgrade, evolve my openrov experience.
first, i changed my heavy acer predator for an asus flip chromebook, less than 1kg, and after chanegd the ip of the openrov (chromeOS dont allow you to use 192.168.254.* ip range) now i can use it for my rov with an extra usb to ethernet adaptor (20 eur)
Working in the drone industy, i am used to fly with video goggles, that feels very immersive, and when i fly using a screen i get the same furstration than using the operov, i feel being spectator, not pilot.
What is great with the asus flip chromebook, is that you have a micro HDMI output, wich allows you to plug some HD VIDEO GOGGLES (cinemizer hd) http://cinemizeroled.com/ and that was A FUNCKING BLASTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT !!!
with the wireless xbox controller that was just an awesome experience, and really, if you have the opportunity to buy, or get some cinemizer goggles, do so, it s worth every single penny.
today for the first time, i felt onboard in my OpenROV and it is a damm good feeling!
so i had to share
