I work for another art project dealing with "immersion" in dance (again with Shonen). The challenge is to feel as if you were inside someone else... or something else. I am investigating about First Person View technologies.
Of course I saw a lot of things about drone FPV racing with a lot of already existing solutions but I am looking for low cost solution.
The first point is FPV googles for sight. Did you already try any Virtual Reality googles ? Did you already tried the Google CardBoard to use an IPhone or Android as a VR ?
Once I have this, I already did with a Raspberry Pi 2 a Flask server managing open cv connected webcam (the webcam of Poppy)
I can place this webcam on the head of a person or inside Poppy's head to live a Poppy life
It may be also interesting to live an ergo junior life.
I share it here because I think it can be an interesting pedagogic project to learn motion, image processing, network and web.
