Virtual Reality with LabVIEW using the Oculus Rift and the Microsoft Kinect

Virtual Reality with LabVIEW using the Oculus Rift and the Microsoft Kinect

A proof of concept of virtual reality application was developed in the programming language LabVIEW from National Instruments using the Oculus Rift DK2 and the Microsoft Kinect V2. The application consists in piloting a small spaceship around the earth using gestures. The lack of correction for lens distortion does not appear to be an issue for this application but could be one for application attempting to produce more realistic environments.

More details about the application can be found at: https://decibel.ni.com/content/docs/DOC-42169
