Really inspiring talk about VR by Michael Abrash. Don't miss the part about audiovisual speech cue combinations.

I bought a $25 USD DodoCase.com cardboard VR toolkit at a VR meetup in San Francisco.  You download some content such as DiveCityCoaster, Refugio Flight Demo, or Hoverboard Dive from the app store.  Then you insert your mobile phone into the box and close it.  The apps track your head movement.  It is pretty cool for $25 USD.

In this video, we present the first onboard perception system for 6-DOF localization during quadrotor high-speed maneuvers using a Dynamic Vision Sensor (DVS). Unlike a standard CMOS camera, a DVS does not wastefully send full image frames at a fixed frame rate. Conversely, similar to the human eye, it only transmits pixel-level brightness changes at the time they occur with microsecond resolution, thus, offering the possibility to create a perception pipeline whose latency is negligible compared to the dynamics of the robot. We exploit these characteristics to estimate the pose of a quadrotor with respect to a known pattern during high-speed maneuvers, such as flips, with rotational speeds up to 1,200 degrees per second. Our algorithm is completely event-based, that is, every event is used as it comes to update the pose of the robot.

Strange place but worth the visit. They have no fixed prices, and you're encouraged to solve Russian riddles while waiting. Food was really good.
