Final Year Engineering Project: Virtual Reality Headset
Its been an amazing past few months having got the opportunity to work on this project. To be very frank, I was in double minds about the credibility of this project, much like any of our professor. But the only fact of YOLO (You Only Live Once) and also you do a final year project only once (unless you extensively "love" your college that you decide to repeat that "final" year) got me to buck up and gear up for this venture. After lots of technical papers, journals read, trying out the components that work the best, raking up the programming brains, getting that electronics shop guy familiar to you, here we are, with the project ready to be shown to the world by 4 such idiots. Reactions have been amazing, some encouraging, some jealous equally, but that's how it has to be! Yeah, that's a brain child, cherished for lifelong. Although the concept of virtual reality headsets is not new to the world but making that one at such a level is for sure. I'll do the less talking, let the video speak more words. But just a word for my other "idiots" for being a great team and pulling up this one.
Thank you Nitin Saini, Ashrit Shetty, Pratik Sule. Thanks a lot!
