Oculus War Games: Norwegian Army tests VR-enhanced Tanks

Die norwegische Armee testet Panzer mit Oculus Rift 360°-Panorama-View. Yay, Future!

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.
