Vectron VR - 6502 Virtual Reality

by nickb79 on Fri Jun 14, 2019 1:19 pm

Hello,

I have built a virtual reality headset for an 8-bit 6502 computer.

Previously, I built a 6502-based breadboard computer:

https://hackaday.com/2019/04/19/a-nearl ... -computer/

Now I've created a virtual reality peripheral for that computer, called Vectron VR:

https://github.com/nickbild/vectron_vr

To demonstrate the system, I've developed the 3D game "Asteroids VR". Put the headset on and you'll be sitting in the 3D cockpit of a spaceship blasting away at asteroids that appear to be floating towards you.

I've got pictures, video, circuit diagrams, a bill of materials, and lots of descriptive text on my github page (https://github.com/nickbild/vectron_vr). My Vectron 64 computer (https://github.com/nickbild/vectron_64) is similarly documented, so it's possible for others to build their own complete system.

I hope you like it!

Thanks,

Nick

Thanks, Mike! I know you've got a lot of retrocomputing enthusiasts that read your blog (I'm one of them), so I hope this can be posted there.
