Hi Beth, I was working in Montpelier and living in Northfield... but I did go to a lakeside party in St Albans!  ;D It was a nice area.

Welcome!

Because real life Mario Kart.

WANT.





Thanks for the welcome, and ME TOO! I'm currently playing around with a couple of Logitech C270 cheapo web cams feeding each eye. Someone made this nifty solution called Ocucam and included the source: https://developer.oculusvr.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1234
I've found a couple of bugs... but it's a start! The next step is to detect & draw something on each frame per stream... probably going to use ARToolKit & OpenCV, but I need to read & learn more first. I can't wait to get past the rudimentary game engine part and on to the haptic stuff. I want to actuate a pneumatic piston to simulate a shell hitting you - something like a rubber foot that slams into the ground... and eventually I want to build engine management to create "limp" and "full throttle" modes for power-up items.
