Wireless VR Streaming to an iPhone

I’ve been tinkering with my new HTC Vive VR headset and was recently able to wirelessly stream the stereoscopic image to an iPhone 6. This was accomplished using Moonlight for iOS, a HTC Vive VR HMD, and a gaming rig loaded with a i7-6700k 4GHz CPU and a 980ti Hybrid GPU. This setup currently only mirrors what is displayed on the Vive.

This was an initial test to see if I could experience Vive output from a different room in the house. That part was successful. Moonlight is open source, perhaps there is potential to create something which uses the high-end PC to output to a wireless VR peripheral that can be tracked throughout the house.
