VR Flight Test


I decided that it was about time I gave some virtual reality development a real look by putting together a flyable spaceship prototype with "physical" controls. By that I mean that you control the ship by actually grabbing the throttle and joystick and moving them as you would if they were real. Even after this first couple of hours work this is really quite a lot of fun and the immersion is insane (though, of course, a video doesn't quite do the VR experience justice). Just for fun, I even implemented the ejector seat handle, hence the flailing as I somewhat nauseatingly spun of into space at the end.
