VR controllers as light gun Idea?
« on: Today at 03:04:38 pm »

I like to tinker with ideas and stuff and develop software... so im trying a proof-of-concept in using VR controllers for lightguns.

some things i think using them will overcome is easy of setup and distance to lcd screens and other stuff i guess (wireless!)

I guess easy to show with a video: 

Just bored and trying to see if something like this is feasible.  I used the virtual desktop app on Quest2 and sized/placed the monitor exactly in same 3d space.

Ive written VR stuff in unity so i could make it a bit easier to run directly on my mamecab via questlink and make it more custom....(off screen reload and stuff)

ideally if tracking was same quality in rift we could use those older sensors to just track gun.

if i wanted to go all out on a driver.   have a shell around the controller and put like an esp32 bluetooth to drive other stuffs on it....

don't know... just thinking out loud :)
