Project Anywhere is complete virtual reality system that combines augmented reality with virtual reality. An application developed with Unity3D and Java runs on a smartphone, which turns the users smartphone into a VR headset– much like the well know Oculus Rift.
Both the gloves and headset are 3D printed. The gloves include a few other components in order to send sensor data to the VR headset wirelessly. These include: Arduino Mini Pro, XBee radio module, inertia measuring unit, six bend sensor sockets, and a LiPo battery.
The entire system combines to give users the ability to interact with a virtual environment using their body. You can see Project Anywhere in use, in the video below.
