VR goggles flip the actual world into ASCII artwork
Positive, ASCII artwork is cool for making lewd gestures and the unicorn that you simply use on your e-mail signature, however could not we be doing extra with it? Properly, some Russian artists / DIY’ers definitely assume so, and in consequence they’ve created an immersive system which lets you view the world by way of the lens of actual-time ASCII artwork (amongst different results). The designers of this VR headset / reside video-results-unit have been hoping to switch “actual” actuality for the consumer, thus making a “digital actuality” expertise by way of video results (just like Photoshop filters) in a binocular viewer. The creators used a pair of goggles with a digital camera hooked up, a proprietary “black field” consisting of a CPU, battery, and radio transmitter, and customized-coded video processing modes (we assume, contemplating the field has no “working system”). The end result? Nicely, in addition to ASCII — which seems to be a bit just like the Matrix numbers — you are able to do an impact akin to the Predator’s POV… although we’re fairly positive it will not make you invisible, or a deadly, alien killer. Verify the video after the break to see the psychedelic magic unfold.
