Lego VR Headset!

Build Your Own VR Head Mounted Display With Lego!

There are plenty of VR headsets around these days, but they come at price. So how about building your own head mounted display (HMD)? Sure, this sounds very technical and expensive which sort of defeats the object. But that is not what Odd Arne Roll thinks, because his design uses Lego and components that can be purchased online at great prices.

So all you need here is a pair of $16 lenses, enough Lego to build the HMD and an app, such as Durovis or 3dtube to complete the design. Once you have spent a bit of time on it, you now have your own VR headset that you built yourself and it did not cost the earth either. In addition, you have the added bonus of a cool looking Lego VR headset that everyone will want to have a go of.
