Combine two up-and-coming technologies — virtual reality and quadrotors — add an abandoned warehouse, tell OSHA to piss off, and you’ve got the recipe for first-person-view drone racing, aka the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

FPV drone racing isn’t a new sport, by any means, but this video of a race in an abandoned warehouse in Australia gives a whole new insight into the sport. The drones, goggles and comms systems are all homebrewed, meaning that it’s partly an engineering contest, and party a question of who’s watched the pod-racing scenes from Star Wars the most.
