FPV drones with an Oculus Rift

It was only a matter of time, and now someone’s finally done it. The Oculus Rift is now being used for first person view aerial photography. It’s the closest you’ll get to being in a pilot’s seat while still standing on the ground.

Quad-Copter – Update

I have been pretty busy and have not had much time to work on my quad-copter. Since my last post, I have made a few more test flights and now have wireless avionics via XBee modems working.

My next goal is to upgrade the frame (ideas), attach video for FPV (GoPro HD) and integrate GPS (Google maps way-point control).

My new motivation c/o RCExplorer

DIY-Make Your Own Greenscreen for $16

This is a great tutorial for any independent photographers. This greenscreen uses pvc piping that will only cost you $16. I found this tutorial earlier and it is awesome. There are also some great greenscreening tutorials in Adobe Photoshop on this site. I have to do some mugshots (j/k) for one of my clients websites coming up, I think I will be visiting Lowe’s soon.
