Got an old netbook kicking around you’ve been meaning to trade in? Wait, it still has a use as your guard bot. Drop it into the Oculus and from anywhere in the world you can drive it around and see what’s going on back at the homestead using the laptop's camera and net connection, along with the Oclusus driving system. At the moment it’s only for 10in screens and smaller; but the sky’s the limit now Oculus is ten grand over-funded.
