    Making my own VR Headset

    Been looking at pieces to make a Virtual Reality device (noncardboard, for PC) and have found a way to spend $180 USD to create a device with a 6" display at 2560p (1280p per eye) with the immersion and tracking expected. I've got to say I'm surprised about how easy it was to make, I did however end up using the Oculus SDK to get it working software wise but it works. All it takes really is time (took me 30-38 hours) and the right equipment, If anyone wants links to the parts to make one tell me and I'll be happy to send them to you, Personally for me it's cheaper then getting an Oculus DK2, just $5 over half of the price with a higher resolution (same resolution as the CV1). And if a 14yr old can do it I'm pre sure you'll be able to also

    Will post pics when my phones fixed because as always I've misplaced my webcam
