Hey /guys/
I got some basic experience in building stuff and handling tools and electronics etc. Now i wanna make my own VR Headsedt. It shouldnt be cheap like pic related, but include headphones, a small mic and yeah, a screen (or however you want to call it).
The screen will be divided in 2 parts by some software and i'll buidl a seperation between those two that i can see the 2 parts seperately. Now my problem is: I need a ca. 4.5-6.5 inch screen (i guess, havent figured that out yet) that is quite affordable. It should have HDMI/VGA/DVI compability, if you got any other ideas of running something like that from a pc, enlighten my. Then i somehow need to buy the right lenses. Here is where i havent found out much. I guess i should buy lenses with a focus point far enough to see the screen right. Have any of you suggestions where it comes to screen or lenses of waht i should buy? I dont wanna use a phone, because of latency and my s3 got a screen crack. And btw, i dont give a shit about this 360 view angle stuff. I just want it as a simple PC screen.

screens in many of the major VR headsets are indeed cell phone screens. you should start with a phone with high ppi and remove the screen and figure out how convert its input into HDMI

btw you are better off using a samsung phone with samsung vr because its got its own app store, you can still use it as a phone, and its supported by occulus devs

Search for google cardboard, IIRC some guides that talk about it link to lenses on amazon.

there is a alibaba cardboard version for 2.99$ if the normal 20$ cardboard is too expensive (lol but i imagine if 20$ is too expensive for you, your project is DOA)

The thing is i dont realy got a phone to operate it. Right now im thinking about buying some cheap 30 buck vr googles and put a 5 inch screen into it.

you wont have head tracking which is a huge thing.

you really need to start with a phone or phone display or its gonna be garbage

you can DIY a rift-alike without too much trouble

>I just want it as a simple PC screen
Any screen you buy is gonna be way too small for a decent desktop resolution of any kind, plus, I don't think much exists in the way of virtual monitor software.

Not true.

Cell phone screens are not good enough to support high end VR.

If you have a phone with an internal gyro (not all of them do) you can use trinus VR and google cardboard
trinusvr.com
you can get a good plastic cardboard enclosure or you can just get the plans to build your own on googles cardboard website
it works wirelessly but you really would want to run a wired connection.

You are a fucking idiot and you don't know shit rift dk2 literally has a Samsung screen in it. You know what just kill yourself because op isn't building a high end anything because this is a thread asking how to frame a house out of pallet wood and imitation crab meat. Open is a kid and has no clue how vr works and neither do you, piece of shit

Most phones use DSI, you can use this to get HDMI onto them:

Head tracking is as easy as an arduino and a 9 axis board.
There are full dev boards you can just load the rift's firmware onto.
