Epson announced the launch of an augmented reality flight simulator that will let you pilot a virtual drone through the physical space around you using the company’s Maverio AR glasses.
There are even a few games built into the app. You can collect candy or fly through some rings. Figuring out how the holographic drone relates to these objects in space definitely highlighted some of the limitations of the simulation.
It shows that combining 2 wildly different fields can give impressive results, and gives you the pleasure of having a drone without breaking the bank.
Augmented reality devices like the Microsoft Hololens or the Magic Leap or systems like Apple ARKit or Google Tango are extending the reality with an additional synthetic visual layer and are opening complete new possibilities for guidance, info- and entertainment systems.
