Flight simulator of a wingsuit through virtual reality and an electronically controlled mechanism that reminds Vitruvian man of Leonardo Da Vinci. The person inside controls the flight with joystick and wears a backpack that wirelessly (thanks to the battery) allows to create virtual reality with viewers. You can fly anywhere for a unique experience. The engines, in full security, allow the person to move like a gyroscope.
We used the backpack with Vive. We’ve created a VR application in Unity that simulates flying over a city.
With 2 handles, the person inside the circle will be able to command the engines and then simulate the flight in complete autonomy. This part was built with Arduino and with TINYTILE cards. The cards are connected directly to the PLCs of the motors.
This is an important part of Intel technology that allows us to automate everything.
