Third Person Point of View Camera Rig Turns Your Life into a Video Game

The Third Person Point of View Camera Rig is a unique project by UTSI PhD student Jason King that aims to create a wearable camera that allows users to view life through a third-person, video-game style point of view. A camera is mounted to a backpack, which then feeds the video into the goggles of the wearer. There’s even an Instructables tutorial that teaches you how to make your own, if you’re so inclined.

Regardless of whether or not this has practical applications for life, if it’s commercialized in the future a lot of video-game addicts will finally have a way to feel more comfortable in the real world.
