The "Motorcar Compositor" is an interesting Wayland-based compositor that supports using an Oculus Rift and Razer Hydra with support for 3D windows.

The work was developed using QtWayland and is exploring "truly 3D windowing" using an Oculus Rift head-mounted display and Razer Hydra mouse. This 3D Wayland compositor was developed by Forrest Reiling for this master thesis. Simply watch the video embedded below to learn more about the project.


The code and more information on this Wayland compositor can be found via GitHub.
