Cable Management? What is everyone using to keep Cables off the Ground?

I too find that I get tangled up quite a bit playing shooters.  I attached a hook to my ceiling and used a retractable badge lanyard to the cable. Problem was, when you stand under it, the cable will hang down in your face and can interrupt immersion. I like that one fella's belt idea but the 3-in-1 cable is too short for my 4m² play space. As it stands, if I get to the far corners of my room, I can feel the weight of the cable pulling my head back slightly. Wireless sounds like the right way to go for sure. It may have been possible to come up with a single cable that can freely spin with power, USB and HDMI each wrapped around each other in insulated concentric rings so that the cable could rotate freely as you make your way around your room.

My best tip to keep the main cable out the way whilst gaming on the vive is if you can hook it up on an eyelet curtain rail on the central support is that is an option to you.

 

It keeps the cable off the floor and just works perfect (provided you can reach one from your play area).

I was using it like this just last night playing ready player one games (the gunter hunter) and never had problems with the cable in my way.

 

If you wanted to you could also purposly mount one of these supports onto your ceiling which would work just as well.

I'm using the Hyperkin VR cable management system. Fairly easy to setup and works wonders!
