You no longer need to sit through Ewoks to watch drones race through the forest: YouTuber Olivier Yorgandjian and his friends put First-Person View (FPV) Cameras on their quadcopter drones and then raced them through the forest. FPV cameras allow the users to transmit the video taken from the drones back to tablets or virtual reality goggles like the Oculus Rift, so the fliers of these drones would have been able to see everything from the drone point of view in real time. With any luck, quadcopter drone racing will become a serious sport, and our world will get one step closer to Star Wars.
