remote controlled drone - burning man 2013

Remote Controlled drone equipped with video camera sending a live feed to the guy on the left, who is wearing Virtual Reality (VR) goggles.­ The VR Goggles have multi-axis orientation sensors, and they control the orientation of the camera on the drone, i.­e.­ if you turn your head to the right, the camera will rotate to the right, etc.­

Burning Man is yearly gathering of about 70,000 people, many from the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating love, life, passion and art during one week in a desolated desert in Nevada.­

The event takes place each last week of august in an immense dry lakebed called Black Rock Desert.­ A temporary city is built where about everything is permitted except violence, money and commerce.­

The culmination of the event is the burning of a large human-shape figure in a giant bonfire, hence the name (Burning Man).­ The city disappears completely at the end of the week, leaving no trace.­
