USC Launches 3-D Printed VR Headset Library

Soulskill posted about a year ago | from the 3d-print-all-the-things dept.

Hesh writes "The University of Southern California has launched a website that contains the blueprints for many of their custom VR headsets as well as new mods to the much anticipated yet unreleased Oculus Rift. Some are helping push DIY VR forward through custom sensor mounts to support, for example, stereo cameras and others add more functionality like new eye cups to help increase the already large FOV of the headset. This is truly an exciting time for VR; by GDC, developers will already have Rifts in hand and tinkerers can 3D-print their own designs now as well!"

There is a Reaper, whose name is Death,
And, with his sickle keen,
He reaps the bearded grain at a breath,
And the flowers that grow between.

"Shall I have naught that is fair?" saith he;
"Have naught but the bearded grain?
Though the breath of these flowers is sweet to me,
I will give them all back again."

He gazed at the flowers with tearful eyes,
He kissed their drooping leaves;
It was for the Lord of Paradise
He bound them in his sheaves.

"My Lord has need of these flowerets gay,"
The Reaper said, and smiled;
"Dear tokens of the earth are they,
Where He was once a child.

"They shall all bloom in fields of light,
Transplanted by my care,
And saints, upon their garments white,
These sacred blossoms wear."

And the mother gave, in tears and pain,
The flowers she most did love;
She knew she should find them all again
In the fields of light above.

Oh, not in cruelty, not in wrath,
The Reaper came that day;
'T was an angel visited the green earth,
And took the flowers away.

You mix the hype from the '90s with the hype from the '10s, what do you get?

<cynical_mode>A more immersive experience for the drone pilots... what do you expect? That's were the money are!
Tapping the resources of a group of enthusiasts will speed up the project and lower the costs (but not necessarily the price)</cynical_mode>

You're a dumb faggot with absolutely nothing of relevance to say.

Much like the other two-million-plus-odd sockpuppet users of Dice.

Kill yourself now, faggot.

Perhaps, but then again perhaps that's just what the trolls want you to believe!

I personally find his posts hilarious. Even more so in the context I believe I met him during a job interview irl.

He's been doing that since getting mod-bombed a few months back. Ironically, his posts have been far less temperate since then, defeating the purpose of the 2 posts per day penalty of low karma accounts.

Sorry for feeding this one, I wasn't aware of that...
Maybe he should update his HOSTS file and feel better then.

APK probably won't even show up, Apparently no one fucking cares about this article anyway. It was up for two hours before it broke five post.

Re:So it's like a Reese peanut butter cup? (1)

gmhowell (26755) | about a year ago | (#43194943)

Not sure why anyone would care about the article. Nothing in it to indicate it's not 1997 with the whole VR thing. Crappy slashdot article as usual.

If my theories about Mr. Hosts are correct, it should be another week before he shows up, minimum.

I wasn't saying to feed or not feed Ethanol-Fueled. Heck, I'm not even saying he's a troll per se. He could be a bit abrasive at times, but a mod bombing down to two posts a day status? Ouch.

So why couldn't Geordi replicate a spare visor?

It's because he was a fag named leforge. Anyone with le at the front of their first or last name is a fag.

Pathetic to see VR technology hasn't changed in 30 years. Call me when one can have immersive VR with sunglasses.

On the contrary this is revolutionary technology!!!
They have taped half a Viewmaster to a telephone! Think about it.
