I was sitting in my backyard yesterday and was trying to watch some movies using the ViewMaster VR kit.
I purchased the kit a while back and it made me think. It needs some upgrades.
Here’s what I did.
What were the problems?
No Sound. The ViewMaster has no headphone jack.
Easily fixed by filing out a space for it.
Not Hands-Free. The viewer kept falling off my face and I didn’t want to hold it.
I took an old sparring helmet from my son and ‘customized’ it to allow the mask to be embedded into the front.
Still falling off when I lay down
I was still having a few problems getting it just right so I added additional tubing laced through the top and now it fits perfectly.
Ok. I know…
Style is WEAK
This I can’t fix and so it may not be the best looking contraption, but it sure works great.
Now I can fall asleep watching the Grateful Dead in 3d.
Rock n Roll!
