Improving the Oculus Rift DK2

DIY and craft virtual reality

During the last weeks I added two useful extensions to my oculus rift.

Attaching the leap motion

The first one is a “must have” for the virtual reality glasses: The leap motion controller.

Attach it to the front of the oculus rift to see your own hand inside the virtual reality.

I already tried to manage this effect using the Kinect some months ago. But the leap motion solution is a much easier to handle.

Attaching a fan

Sometimes - especial in the summer time - the oculus glasses got a little bit fogged.

This can be disturbing when in an exciting elite-dangerous battle. So I added a small fan to the rift. It can turned on, when needed.
