Thank you so much for getting back to me so fast! I will look into a VR180 set up, I am only seeing 3 cameras atm, one being about $3k and the other 2 being well, disasters from what I can find? The Mirage Camera with Daydream looks kinda promising if I can get my hands on one. Are there any others you know of that you could recommend in the 100-200 range?
Fortunately I am not one of the population that really is affected by motion sickness, my wife on the other hand for sure is. So I can understand that idea. I was imagining some Picture in Picture modes to help off-set the motion sickness aspect. A solid Microscope that doesn't move much with maybe with a large grid that doesn't move at all, and also then a smaller in picture showing my "eyes"
So it sounds like, I am going to make my own game eh? And by game I mean my own software with virtual camera setups so I can program them in. I would guess I will have to recreate my work environment in VR/Unity or import it form autocad or such, as I already at one point made my office furniture to be custom built. I guess this is going to turn into a real fun hobby project!
Could you see a reason why I would want to do a 180degree cam instead of a 360 cam? The reason I would want the camera inputs to my Vive Pro eyes, is that my microscope is Trifocal, but really only one is designated for a camera... If i actually wanted to do work, I would need to see through the two eye pieces at the same time for depth, and since i am recording it, I would need to see in 3D basically in real time what i am recording. So i guess that would be more of a "use vive as a monitor for each camera"
I will look around in the SRWorks SDK to see what I can do for the individual feeds and how i can use Unity or something to feed them back into the vive headset. I'm sure ill have some sort of a stream deck to help out with changing out between my microscope view and my vive view. I am wondering if ill have to slap the VR180 cams on the front for high enough resolution to get work done and see what I'm picking up with microscopes. Then to see if i will need a second computer to offset the bandwidth needed by all the cameras haha.
Any other ideas pop to your mind?
I really appreciate it!
