So it's been a long time since I was on diydrones but I wanted to reach out to a lot of you guys that fly fpv and happen to own a pair of 3D goggles. Maybe an oculus rift or some cinimizers. Now with the Transporter 3D (aka T3D) you can do 3d fpv or 2D with large fov using your old fpv gear or new gear from EMR Labs or someone elses' 3D cam or a home made set using two cameras. This system gives you many options to use. It takes in composite signals and outputs it to the goggles. Now for the oculus rift, it has several key features to help with fpv:1. It's powered through the Transporter 3D
2. It passes the headtracker data of the rift to a headphone jack to use through your trainer ports
3. Easy Ipd (Interpupillary Distance) adjustment on the unit for perfect 3D or 2D
4. You can use it for 3D fpv using a 3d camera like the T3D cam or 2D re-sizable fpv. What I mean by re-sizeable is you can zoom the picture to be like your fatsharks or you can be like your in the cinema.
5. Has low power consumption
Currently the indiegogo campaign has already hit it's funding in less than 24 hrs. I wasn't sure if the community knew about this but I can't wait to fly like iron man. I plan or doing a lot with this especially 3D since I've always wanted true bird vision not like I'm watching a screen, but super big fov 2D flying would be cool too. Rift owners will know what I'm talking about and it will get a lot better when the commercial version comes out. It's not something I can describe sorry, but it feels like an out of body experience.

I plan on updating this blog with more stuff. These are exciting times for fpv right now but this might push it further.
