Exploring an API for generating custom VR headset designs

1 min read

Another target I’d like to accomplish is to provide an api for generating custom parameterised EyeTracktive pupil tracking headsets.

OpenSCAD can theoretically produce .stl or .png images via the cmd line, but it requires a lot of cruft to get this to work (an XServer or xvfb) – so wouldn’t it be nice if there was a pre-configured docker container?

After a little look around I found this :

https://hub.docker.com/r/wtnb75/openscad

Theoretically, the simplest way to handle this would be to exec/run openscad from inside the container to output a file mapped to a directory on the host accessible from the API which is part of (e.g.) EyeTracktive.org.

It looks, however, like I’ll have to see if I can cook up a docker file based on https://github.com/wtnb75/dockerfiles/tree/master/openscad-fedora first.

 

Would you like to beta test EyeSkills* or just follow what we are doing?
