Watch a drone being controlled by the Oculus Rift

Intuitive Aerial, a group that uses camera technology to create airborne rigs, outfitted a drone with an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, allowing users to control the flying box and see from its point of view remotely. The video above demonstrates this setup. The drone carries a laptop that is connected back to the Oculus Rift, feeding it images via wireless internet. The person controlling the drone through the Oculus will see everything the drone encounters rather than a digital representation of objects. The laptop compresses the video recorded by the rig's two cameras and sends them back to the viewer in realtime. The only catch is the range on the rig: since the communication to the Oculus depends on Wi-fi, transmissions will stop between 50 and 100 meters. "We have dreamed...

Doctor Who content coming to PlayStation Home this week

Doctor Who's wardrobe and TARDIS will be available to purchase this week within PlayStation Home, PlayStation Blog revealed today. The content, which will be released March 27, focuses on the the more recent Doctor Who adventures — sorry, longtime fans, there's no scarves and trenchcoats on offer this time around. The "Wave One Bundle" of Doctor Who merch includes the Eleventh Doctor's suit and bowtie, River Song's catsuit and costumes for two alien races, the Silurian and the Silent. Users will also be able to purchase a pet Cybermat to follow them around the world, and purchase access to a private space modeled after the impossibly large interior of the TARDIS. Inclined buyers of the content can also use Home's in-game camera to create their own Doctor Who videos, which they can...
