Tips & Tricks: improve your VIVE experience

Over the years there's been a few DIY improvments made to HMDs. 

if you have any ideas to improve the experience let me know...  

 

Here's a couple to start of with....

 

1.)  Wear loose long shorts with deep pockets...  why ?   You can place the controllers in your pockets when you need your hands free..  the pockets act just like pistol holsters. 

 

2.)   Reduce screen door effect : This is a hack I carried out on an Oculus -   to Improve screen fidelity  try  lplacing a " 3M privacy screen "  for a computer monitor :  3M • MFR Item # PF23.0W9   on top of the Vive screen.  I've tested a few screen overlays and the 3M" makes a huge difference....  My Vive  now has a 20-30% improvment in resolution.. no more screen door.

so what you are saying is that the vive has to be dismantled?


Chaos reigns within. Reflect, repent, and reboot. Order shall return.

Yes, how do you go about this?  You put it inside the vive after opening it?  Or just cut part of it to put it over the lens?

Looking at other site, they disassemble their VR to install the sheet straight on their screen.  I won't be trying this anytime soon.
