While you jerks are wasting away watching the Olympics this weekend, I’m going to attempt to make this sweet-ass Head Mounted Display. The Instructable doesn’t seem that hard. Basically I’ll just be transplanting the screens from my busted Myvu personal media glasses into some utility or ski glasses. Maybe I’ll make one for me and one for the wife, solving my Valentine’s Day shopping conundrum.
Now don’t hate on the kid that came up with this idea. Yes, it’s simply reusing parts from a production HMD to make a somewhat inferior product. But that doesn’t matter. This project could lay the foundation for some spectacular mods. Rear-mounted cams, night vision, and even augmented reality applications could all be fitted into the design. Major props, dude. Well done.
