Programming the Raspberry Pi and an Oculus Rift with VR Zero

At a CamJam long past, Wayne Keenan brought along a Raspberry Pi running a virtual reality demo viewed with an early version Oculus Rift. Looking something like the image above, it featured a brick pi symbol floating on a sea of green ‘grass’. He has always wanted to improve the system that ran it, but until now just hasn’t had the time. Several years, and some software library improvements, later, Wayne has managed to integrate a new Oculus Rift DK2 headset and has re-written everything into a library, called VR Zero. He has written the project up on his blog and made the code available on GitHub. Great stuff, Wayne! You can see a video of the new code in action below:
