    Raspberry Pi 4 CRT-based VR Headset

    element14 presents  |  Andy West's VCP Profile |  Project Videos




    What would virtual reality be like if flat panel display technology were never invented? In this project, Andy uses a pair of CRTs and the Raspberry Pi 4 to build a VR headset with stereoscopic 3D, 3DOF head tracking, and custom, browser-based software. It may not be practical but it's definitely unique, and guaranteed to have no screen door effect.
