Oculus VR support ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • WWT is an incredible piece of software ! Are you planning to add Oculus VR support ? It would bring Virtual reality to WWT for a reasonable budget.

    The Eclipse Beta will have Built-in Oculus Rift support!

  • When will the Eclipse Beta be available? I have what I believe to be the latest WWT installation, but it is not labeled as Eclipse Beta, yet there is an option under View for the Rift. When I click on that option, the stereo pair of the Rift viewer appears, but as soon as I try to navigate with the mouse, the view disappears and the telescope goes black. The top and bottom menus appear, but the view does not return unless I disable the stereo viewing mode altogether, and then the telescope goes back to 'normal.' Are there instructions somewhere as to how to interface the Rift with the WWT?

    Thanks much,
