True, to implement the full capability would have to be done through sidefx.
But if you just wanted the basic naviation, (which rocks...) you could have an
app collecting input from the controller, and have it send camera info to
Houdini through the serial port. As long as you're looking through the updated
camera, you could at least navigate. 

It looks really cool. 

1000 per day!!!! I'll work for you!!! ;)


God, how much more profitable would it be, 
if the Thinker would learn from the Drunk?
