TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER - $TBC | www.thrustvec­tor.com

In what’s got to be one of the most high risk ap­pli­ca­tions of VR to date, two pilots in Texas are prac­tic­ing land­ing light air­craft us­ing noth­ing but an Ocu­lus Go head­set for guid­ance. If it wasn’t al­ready ap­par­ent the two pilots are both in the plane, with the pri­mary pi­lot strapped into a VR head­set, whilst the sec­ond pi­lot mon­i­tors de­ci­sions and dou­ble checks po­si­tion­ing read­ings. The Thrust Vec­tor soft­ware is be­ing de­vel­oped to make it eas­ier for pilots to land in low vis­i­bil­ity con­di­tions.
