My custom OpenDive // Wide lenses

Hi all !

I'm Paul, and i'm new on this board.
I'm new in VR since a few monthes, made several prototypes, and starting developping apps in Unity since a few weeks. (with Dive SDK, thanks Durovis !)

Here's my latest dive prototype... almost perfect !
I use 55mm diameter lenses from Manutan (2.165 inches) and the SLA printer in my office... ;)

[size=85:i3wsntdn]The front led is lit only for the show ![/size:i3wsntdn] :twisted:

I also made a CAD prototype for a friend, owner of a Nexus 5 and a DIY 3D SLA printer.
Below a video of this concept - optimised for 3D printing

All CAD files (solidworks) available somewhere here.

Hey, welcome!

I was thinking about the lenses too... can you see clearly with a good definition with those wide lenses? I like the dive because it can be adjusted for each person. Google Cardboard is a generic visor but because of that the vision it's a little blurry =/

I can adjust the distance of the lenses from the screen with 4 screws on the top and bottom of the Dive.
It's not really practical to adjust them each time a different person want to try it, so I set them for a standard vision with no correction,
and I use my own corrective glasses.

I designed my dive to be wide enough to fit with my glasses... ;)

Everybody who tried the Oculus Rift told me my Dive was a much better experience ! (due to better screen resolution of my smartphone, and the large FOV of my lenses)
I also tried the cardboard, but I think it's a cheap device to discover VR. Not to practice it every day...
It's just like cars. Once you drove a large luxury car, getting back to an old small shitty car is really hard... we get used to comfort very fast ! :lol:

Durovis Dive is a bit better than Cardboard, but it uses the same lenses.
But it's still en entry-level product, that fit to a reasonnable selling price. Once your convinced by VR, one's should invest in better hardware.
My lenses costs almost the price of the whole Durovis Dive...

The process of observation naturally results in thinking, setting up hypotheses, trying to answer certain questions. All these should be reflected in field notes. Therefore, the writer should make detailed field notes during the process of observation, recording every minor detail, even the one that may seem insignificant during the process of observation. Each minor detail may animate the future essay and relieve it from the routine tone. Inclusion of personal experiences endured by the writer during the process of observation may also animate the essay and make it less formal. The writer of an observation essay should give sufficient detail to transfer the reader into the observed atmosphere. Minor strokes as “crystal chandelier” or “mahogany table” will solidify the observation and provide the reader with sensation of presence in the described position. The inability of most students to observe and forces them to ask for specialists write my paper for me cheap.
Observation essay is a written “photograph” of some experience. Preparatory stage usually includes the observation itself. This stage is aimed at collecting as much information as possible using mostly sight, smell, touch, hearing and taste; however sometimes it may be useful for the writer to pay attention to such senses as, for example, cold, heat, pain, pressure, etc.
