It was going to happen eventually, but it’s still a surprise: the Oculus Rift is fully capable of being part of a $2,000 solution to allow a tank’s operators to see a view akin to that of Battlefield 4’s third-person armored vehicle view. To accomplish this feat, Norwegian Army is testing an Oculus Rift headset, connected to a system of cameras — look in a specific direction and the cameras will give you the desired view.
Still, the system needs improvements, far beyond the fact that they’re using the low-res Oculus version that is prone towards making the user sick.
However, the system will be implemented in five years, if the military can afford it.
