Google Cardboard is a 3D VR Viewer for Raspberry Pi Tank! #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

 

It wasn’t enough for Freddy Kilo to maek a Rasberry Pi tank. He added Google Cardboard so he could see what the tank sees, 3D VR style. via Raspberry Pi Pod

Each Pi is equipped with a camera module which are mounted side-by-side at the front of the vehicle. The video output is streamed via U4VL. He has then used a browser app called Floating Apps to view the two video feeds side-by-side on his Android phone mounted inside a Google Cardboard. Thus, he has a VR 3D viewer for his robot’s cameras! The whole thing is set off by using a wireless XBox controller to move the robot remotely. You can see the result of his efforts on the video above and leave him a comment on YouTube.
