Evaluating the Meta Quest 3 and Other VR + Mixed Reality Headsets and Controllers

on 04 Mar 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 0

For the past 6 months to a year Computer Dudes, and I have been doing heavy research and development on VR and Mixed Reality Headsets

We were among the first people and companies that have done research and development on this hardware and Software

Evaluation:  Meta Quest 3

Pros:  

Smallest VR / Mixed Reality Headset with multiple sensors and cameras.   The one we are using does Eye tracking.
Games are Fun - But Simple
Good for Research
Good for "Room" Creation
Works with Other Computers and Cell Phones

Cons:

Weight
Battery - Based on Use the Minimum Battery Life can be less than 1 hour
Size - far to large and cumbersome
Not for use Outside - not weatherproof.   Probably not ready for Factory Floor
Fragile 

So far we can only recommend these for home, recreation, and data center control center.   Many of the games help develop real life skills even things
like working on your car or learning photography.  

We also learned to "SideLoad" giving us access to all droid software and apps and addition to what Meta offers.

More Soon: we will finish this evaluation of the Meta Quest 3 and report on the Ray Ban Smart Glasses,  then maybe something on the Oculus 2.
We hope to test Apples Smart Glasses next.    

You can see photos of me wearing the headset this morning - I posted the on my profile: Todd W. Byars - On LinkedIn   :)T

Computer Dudes initiate Drone Defense training.

on 14 Jan 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 6

We started our Drone Defense training course this morning with a one hour segment on Drones, Perimeters, Threat Vectors and Attack Vectors.   

This segment covers the basic of drones, their weak points, flight paths and attack vectors.     After a brief classroom segment we practiced personal drone defense inside 20 yards.

Then we discussed drone defense weapons, their weight, their ammo (if any) and how to use them at different ranges.    The group practiced defending against different flight and approach vectors and speeds.

We closed with a segment on safety, cleanup, and storage of equipment.    None of the Civilians who took the training had any experience with drones, or defense, or electronic warfare, or weapons.

The Computer Dudes, Inc in conjunction with Mac 1 Security hope to offer the whole course - including live shooting and wifi defense against drones and targets set to fly like attacking drones - starting in March of 2024.   We will post as soon as the class is ready and registration is open.

Drone Defense Training:
Segment One - Drone Size, Class, Identification and the "Ready" Stance - Ready to Listen, Ready to See, Ready to React
Segment Two - Drone Threat / Response by Distance, Bearing and Angle of Attack  -  Current "Layers" of Drone and or Air Defense
Segment Three - Defining your "personal defense zone" - from your person out to about 50 yards.
Segment Four - Tools and Weapons for Drone Defense - Comparison and Discussion 
Segment Five - Rifles, Pistols, Shotguns, Jammers and Electronic Drone "guns"
Segment Six - Shotgun and Pistol identification and practice on Paper Targets,  Practice with Laser Pointer on or in barrel.
Segment Seven - Hunting Birds and Hunting Drones - Similar Theory and Practice
Segment Eight - Shooting Skeet and "Moving Targets" out to 60+ Yards
Segment Nine - Drone Flight and Practice  -  Drone vs Drone simulation.
Segment Ten - Anti-Drone Ammunition, Non-Lethat Ammo, Carbon Ball Ammo, Salt Rock Ammo, 12 Gauge compared to .410
Segment Eleven - Shoot and Scoot!!   Electronics OFF..   Drone Avoidance. 
Segment Twelve - Open Practice according to student or group requests.

Everyone completing the course will receive a Certificate, some books and materials used during the course and a free sample of our new ammunitions.

We are looking at this being a 3 or 4 day event with social events and food from the area - including some of the game birds professionally prepared.

The area has normal Hotels or Historic Places one can choose to stay during the nights.     A number of the groups supporting this project will have many types of hunting, sporting goods, sporting wear, knives, tents, hiking gear, hunting gear and even hunting licenses.

Extra time with a professional trainer on the shooting part of this course, or of any other part of this course will be available during the course or for hire for private lessions.

Sincerely,

Todd W. Byars

2 New Drones arrived today for our next Drone Flight Training Class. One is a new drone to replace for one lost earlier this week in our Basic Drone Flight Training.

That is the benefit of learning flight and flight maneuvers on in-expensive - disposable drones.

The student then gets a choice on which of the practice drone models they want to take home.

Part of our drone training includes an overview of how to pass the FAA Drone, Recreational or Private Pilot's License as well as a list of schools and resources in their home town - or near.

Military version of Anti-Drone / Drone Defense Courses

https://lnkd.in/gWMnjUTM

As for Computer Dudes' "Civilian" Drone Defense Course we have techniques weapons not know to the military. As the video in the link shows the military has weapons and methods civilians and companies can not use at this time.

Like the military Computer Dudes' Drone Defense course uses a "layered" defense. :)T

Fascinating.
Some of the small WiFi Bridge equipment, with directional antennas, can be used to "jam" or "block" a WiFi router, transmitter, or small area of WiFi service.
It is not a new concept or function - its just the last time we experimented with WiFi jamming the Yagi antenna, transmission, and monitoring equipment weighed several hundred pounds.
Current to 2024 WiFi "Bridge" equipment works off a phone and the antenna's are the size of a tea cup. Cool Stuff! :)T

Only the Computer Dudes dares to bring FPV Simulators and Trainers - to the real world!!

Freestyle - pilot vs pilot and drone vs drone on indoor and outdoor courses.

Our "Dogfight" drone game is the most fun in my experience.

We use the manual controllers but are modding things for VR and Mixed Reality Headset Use.

Dont have a drone yet? Use some of the FPV or other training simulations and instructions on youtube. Have fun! :)T

Why Muon Beams are important - from Fermilab discussion:

Radio Waves and Light(laser) have been mastered as "carrier waves" for audio, video, and data.

What might be the "next" carrier wave? One not blocked by Matter or Time?? ;)T
