Great info on different projection techniques for VR video on Paul Bourkes site: paulbourke.net/dome/panodome/
A implementation of a render cam based on this in Blender: blender.org/manual/game_engine/camera/dome.html
Schematics of the discrete part of a sensor node for the Valve/HTC Vive Lighthouse Tracking System courtesy of Alan Yates. More info in this thread on reddit: reddit.com/r/Vive/comments/465lqw/lighthouse_sensor_module_designs/ in Alan Yates posts here: reddit.com/user/vk2zay and in this video with him talking about it at maker faire:
Also interesting the embedded-fm podcast with Alan Yates talking about Lighthouse Development and the science behind it in general: http://embedded.fm/episodes/162
For an in depth analysis of the lighthouse system read Oliver Kreylos post here: doc-ok.org
Someone made a board from the schematics. The data is on github: github.com/pdaderko/lighthouse_sensor/tree/master/hardware
There is a open source implementation of a indoor tracking system that uses the vive base stations on github: https://github.com/ashtuchkin/vive-diy-position-sensor
Last but not least. Valve started a royalty-free licensing program to use lighthouse technology for third-party products. Licensees will need to pay $2,975 to attend a training course, but other than that, there’s no licensing fees or royalties for using the tech.
Valve provides a Lighthouse ‘Licensee Dev Kit’ to companies who apply to use the technology. It includes:

The future is already here – it’s just not very evenly distributed.
Be creative. Try harder.
Form follows function.
Keep it simple. Stupid.

I’m gonna have to science the shit out of this.
When data disproves a theory, a good scientist discards the theory and a poor one discards the data.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
My problem is that I find everything increasingly interesting.
