Possible alternative to a cockpit/mm setup?

Post by Guest on Wed Oct 26, 2011 7:30 pm

Hey all,

I've been trying to figure a way to somewhat cost effectively get a cockpit setup running at home, but with storage constraints in mind to keep the other half happy...

A colleague suggested the upcoming Sony visor, and I thought hmmm... add Kinect for the head tracking, and it could work pretty damn well! Effectively 150" at 4 metres, and with the head tracking, you could actually turn your head properly, not just turn it and still have to keep your eyes on the TV screen.

I'd post a link, but not allowed to yet... Embarassed The visor is on the Sony US site, model HMZ-T1

Is there any reason why this couldn't work?

All I can think of at this stage is a mic for XBL comms, might anyone have a solution that could be integrated?

maybe the link to our sponsor new foldaway rig can help some of your problem with storage, not sure on the other side of things Disco

Thanks guys - the compact stands look good.

The only stickler now is trying to get XBL comms potentially running with the visor. Unfortunately as it's not out yet theory is all I have to go on. And I haven't worked out a potentially workable theory yet! Well, nothing that doesn't involve hacking the visor up to fit a headset into it anyway...
