Another idea is using a baseball cap with a wire holder. It works and it is very light, It accomplished also that is an open frame.

It needs some tweaking, but it was a relatively successful first step in this direction.


Some years ago I developed with some other friends a fold-able 3D viewer, similar to the Viewmaster from the 80's. I got some of the remaining lenses from that product and try to develop a newer version, but in this case using a smartphone instead of printed stereo-grams.

This time I used a plastic cardboard instead of the cardboard or construction paper.
I redesigned the whole frame to hold a smartphone Samsung S3 form factor. It also holds perfectly a Nexus 5.

The Oculus Rift open the way to the rebirth of the VR as a feasible way to have Virtual Reality home entertainment. From that point some others have been configuring different ways to make the Oculus Rift experience portable. The DIVE and some others are the demonstration of that movement.

I tried the Oculus several times, since a friend has it and once in a while he invites to test some of the latest Oculus Rift demos. 

The DIVE option is excellent for the mobile Oculus version and also the google cardboard glasses works nice, but I have a personal design that fits more with what I think improves the mobile oculus version:

-The frame should be open in order to allow touch the phone screen
-Access to the smartphone buttons also are needed.
-A frame that can be folded and send via email, cheaply.
-A material that is waterproof.
-Lightweight, to allow an easy mobility.
