Bluetooth Gyroscopic Machine Gun on KS

Post by metronome »

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/20 ... =discovery

Hmm.. looks interesting... not sure how well it work using VR glasses, what do you think, am i going to be running out of money and backing this and a vest... ofc no specs on how good the IMUs are and how much drift? Do you think this would be an awesome new product or just junk plastic? I would have preferred a pistol instead lol...

EDIT:
Just realised that the gun itself isn't gyroscopic I don't think = FAIL!

Looks interesting, but I'm not sure I'd consider this VR.

I remember when someone (maybe it was here?) was posting around about using a Gyration Air Mouse and a small screen to build one of these.

Pretty funny to see it on kickstarter now.
