Project Autoscope is an out of body experience.

Through the lens of an oculus rift, and the camera of the drone, you will see yourself from a third person perspective. The drone mirrors your movements, while the oculus gives you the vision. The adjustment to this new paradigm promotes challenge and is delightful.

Both the drone and oculus are remarkably affordable, even in their infancy. Autoscope is written entirely in WebGL and other open web technologies. The Oculus Rift allows for a seamless virtual reality experience and the parrot drone enables Autoscope to track the wearer while streaming 720p video. The unique pairing between the two technologies is made possible through motion tracking utilizing optical flow.
