The Lambretta is a random picture from the net. 

 

Scooters are still very much part of UK culture, associated with Mods, Soul, Northern Soul and Ska. Good things.

 

It is easy to forget that you guys are so spread out across the world and that some joke references that would be very obvious to a Brit, wouldn't necessarily make sense to some of you.

 

Next week, we teach you all about Pork Pies and faggots in gravy.

Hope this video clears some misconceptions about VR :salute:

 

 

Rothary this is the first time I've seen any sort of video that actually gives an idea of what VR is really like.  That was really good.  

 

Could you do some more like that?

Well here's another one using Sopwith Camel. When using VR you of course also have two views rather than just this one my phone is filming, since you have two eyes and the headset has two lenses. What this means is that the VR world appears to you as 3D through the exact same mechanic real life appears as 3D. This feels really amazing in VR because as a result you can tell distances a lot better. Flying in a very tight formation becomes significantly easier , you can really tell that you're flying high up and you can even see just how big the aircraft actually are. The immersion is really only limited by the lack of physical feel for what you're seeing, which for some people might cause motion sickness.

 

VR really is one of those things that you just gotta try for yourself to really get the idea.

 

 

Note that you can only move freely this far away from the actual cockpit if you're not using the setting that restricts your VR view into the cockpit. Without the setting you can for example simply lean to the side to clip through the canopy of your WW2 plane. What the setting does is simply make you drag the entire world with your view if you go beyond the limit, so if you for example try to push your head through the canopy, you'll be simply pushing the canopy (and the entire world) with your head, which might feel a bit funny.
