The Occulus Rift HMD & Vuforia

October 7, 2012 - 6:21am #1

I am interested in the new "Occulus Rift"  VR headset about to be relesed.  

  chek it out here  -  http://oculusvr.com  

would it be possible to intergrate this technology with  Vuforia & if so how ?

The Occulus SDK will support Unity3D  but there is no forward facing camera... so how could one intergrate a camera ? 

It does state the  HMD (head mounted device ) will have DVI & HDMI 

Any Ideas ?

Really impressive. It's nice to see how these technologies are advancing.

It looks impressive, however I guess for AR to work there would need to be a camera version of the headset, which is not too much of a stretch given that these are now commodities in smartphones.

Any other solution will probably need another device strapped to one's head which sounds less than ideal ;)
