driving w/ the oculus-rift and myo

Features

We created a immersive driving simulator which allows the user to interact with their virtual reality experience with natural gestures, by combining the Oculus Rift, Thalmic Labs Myo armband, and the Unity graphics engine.

Motivation

We wanted experiment with Unity, so we set out to make an interesting driving experience with the immersive power of the Oculus Rift. Through a lot of C# and Javascript hacking, we managed to take advantage of the unique gesture recognition technology of the Myo band to allow users to interact in more natural ways with our simulation. The Myo band allows users to brake via hand gesture and more fully immerse themselves in a realistic driving experience.

Bonus

Our name was inspired by years of love for the classic Nintendo racing game.
