by Eugene Pomazov

One of our friends does psychological research in the field of human perception. He was impressed by our experiment with Oculus Go, and wanted to use this solution in his research.

But he had one very strict requirement: the video latency should not exceed 10 ms.

So we decided to do simple DIY-style VR headset with 5.5" AMOLED screen.

The project appears to be very tricky, but after some initial challenges, it works. Now we decided to share with you our step-by-step guide in or TL;DR article. We hope this can help you in your projects with the low-latency 3D video projects. You can read full article here in our blog.

We are a small team of geeks who have been making remote-controlled things with livestreaming video since 2010. We've done everything from boats and planes, to robots, copters, and VR helmets. If we can't find the right tools for our projects, we build them ourselves.
