HMD attachment progress June 18 2014, 3 Comments

I really have been working on an HMD attachment for VR Viewer - there have been lots of iterations! 

 

I am converging on a open-air design that straddles a VR Viewer providing necessary vertical stability in order to prevent dropping the tablet.



The current piece weighs 24g, so that means total weight is up to:

290g (Nexus 7) + 85g (VR Viewer) + 24g (HMD attachment) = 399g, (DK1 Rift is 379; DK2 is 440g)
Head-strap or band will add more weight, of course


Next up, I need to:

  • Continue to iterate and the design, reducing weight further if possible
  • Figure out how to strap this to a 'noggin
  • Deal with weight distribution issues

More news on continued progress soon!
