We had heard about the rising popularity of Oculus Rift, and were wondering how we could wield it to build a cool hack. As two musicians, it became clear that VR-based Rockband was the way to go.

How it works

Python-based image processing see's what the drummer is doing. The Oculus Rift (based on the Unity Game Engine) let's the drummer see the drumset and surrounding environment.

Challenges I ran into

C#. 'nuff said.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We finally got Oculus Rift to work and used it to build a cool Virtual Environment.

What I learned

Image Processing, Unity Game Development, Oculus SDK Usage, and that hackathons are FRICKIN AWESOME.

What's next for Rockware

Using node based image processing to track the fingers of a guitar player!
