Transporter3D to Provide 3D Camera FPV with Oculus Rift Support

November 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment · General 3D News


A Canadian company called EMR Laboratories that has developed a stereoscopic 3D camera for use for FPV flying with remote controlled planes and helicopters a few years ago, the product is called 3D Cam FPV, has recently finished the crowdfunding effort for their new product called Transporter3D. This device consists of an improved version of their original 3D Cam FPV for the capture of both 2D and 3D video with interaxial distance of the two camera lenses the same as the normal human inter-ocular distance to generate a realistic 3D experience. This camera is placed on a remote controlled plane, helicopter or a quadcopter, though other RC vehicles are Ok as well and the video feed can be transmitted via a wireless link to the Transporter3D processing board that can process and output the video in a format that can be viewed directly on the Oculus Rift. This way the Transporter3D should be able to provide one of the most realistic FPV experiences for use with remote controlled models as commapred to other FPV solutions already available.

The backers of the Transporter3D’s indiegogo campaign should start receiving their units in December and probably early next year we are going to see the product also available for purchase. The price for backers of the project for a Transporter3D was $599 CAD and for the 3D-Cam module $299 CAD, but this does not include a Rift and a wireless video transmission solution, so for the complete solution you are looking for something that will cost you about $1500 USD.
