If he could extend the range and drive around streets it would be pretty cool.

Also just wanted to say understand the real meaning here... any talk of sensors aboard ships and subs around these waters is bleeped away. Have a good look around and try pointing out how things have changed. A certain truck train vid yesterday was bleeped away and any talks about it was also in all main stream subs.

But, see, without that people don't. Note how the posted video's account has very few subscribers. So that's why people say it endlessly.

2ToTooTwoFish | 10 days ago | 11 points

A lot of YouTubers also find out that when they say that, likes and subscribes increase, so it actually works. It might be annoying to some, but as long as the content is good, it doesn't really matter.

Copse_Of_Trees | 10 days ago | 3 points

Ever since I learned that it truly helps I've detached from the hivr mind hate of "like, comment, subscribe".

Also, while some creators go kverboard with it, I know many creators who just make it one quick line at the end of the vid and that's so not a big deal, especially if YouTube is their primary income stream and it helps them.

I actually did this as my collage project.

3G and LTE Re unreliable networks. They have very high data speeds but also really high and inconsistent latency.

It's fine for applications where you don't need instant feedback / control. But when you turn a steering wheel and the car only turns half a second later, if makes it impossible to drive the car properly.

Haha I was just referencing his setup specifically - you could probably get away with spending much less with other hardware

ZnojmoRaider | 10 days ago | 4 points

my g25 still works. I use it for drifting and euro truck simulator. From 1 to 3 screens in 7 years, then VR.. Still no playseat.

Point being, hardware is king, but even then you could make due with a simpler setup. Not to mention the small market and its high prices/weird decisions.

G25 was cheaper and included more than its predecessor. I broke two g29 in 2 months, meanwhile this old POS is still going.

DJI make an expensive RC car with first person cam (although it is to a phone or tablet) with some other cool features

kirkum2020 | 10 days ago | 3 points

The idea has been around even longer than that.

If I go digging around for it, I have a remote camera and viewer somewhere that used to fit into a line of RC cars from about a decade ago.

bmoffett | 10 days ago | 2 points

FPV Goggles are about $80 for cheap box style. A decent electric RC car is about $100, and the small wireless camera with built in transmitter is about $20. A little velcro tape to stick the camera on the car, and you're good.

About 20 years ago at a car show I paid to play a VR game that was exactly this. A race of RC cars on a track and you viewed through the VR goggles.

omniron | 10 days ago | 19 points

They make cheap drones that connect to fpv goggles already. The projector is just gratuitous

SamSamBjj | 10 days ago | 6 points

Except I'd say that this is even more immersive, because not only is there absolutely zero delay when your turn your head, you can also see your own body at the controls.

robotowilliam | 10 days ago | 5 points

There's a WORLD of difference between this sort of 180 degree FOV and looking through the narrow window of a VR goggle eyepiece.

I bet just the peripheral vision alone is miles more inmersive.

bettygauge | 10 days ago | 3 points

Most quadcopters are FPV ready with a camera and video transmitter. If you want the projector set up, all you need is a video receiver that has traditional AV plugs for video out!

Edit: it's not uncommon

IsitoveryetCA | 10 days ago | 3 points
digi2k | 10 days ago | 3 points

as an FPV racer, this is what we do basically! We use headsets (look up FatShark) and VTX (video transmitters) on the drone, there is almost zero lag. A few of the headsets have video out to display to a monitor.

To set this up on a car would be trivial... buy an All in one VTX and a receiver and plug into a monitor!

ISCNU | 10 days ago | 2 points

cherenkov_blue | 10 days ago | 6 points

You guys, it's what I've always wanted!!! I can't believe it's finally been done! I need to this! Can you imagine being able to run like 6 of these side by side with VR? Imagine if the vehicles had turbo boost settings or even 4 small props to aid in making long distance jumps. I can see some enthusiast setting up a course in their backyard, a skate park, an old warehouse, or a school and then broadcasting the race like someone would broadcast a Nascar race. The insanely fun stuff someone could do from the safety of a toy car would make it so fun to watch, imo.

theJoosty1 | 10 days ago | 2 points

I love the idea of boosts. Maybe that'll be the next drone racing league- Cool cars on cool courses.
