I have been testing different approaches to cardboard rapid prototyping for a slotted card head design. The accuracy needed for the slotted card approach is difficult with hand cut card so i will use a template to begin with and adapt an existing dxf file to fit around the rift and the users head. This should make it easier to build from instead of starting from scratch and designing a bespoke rig.


I built a rig to hold two cameras at a 20 degree angle on top of the Rift headset to test the feeds and the new cameras with Unity. As part of this process a template for the front of the rift was produced which will be used to help shape the future iterations and the .dxf cutting pattern for the finished rig. The cameras are mounted on a frame at an angle to create a crossover in the image to create a section of binocular vision at the front of the rig. In the finished design they will be…
