Hahaha I know that it sounds crazy… but I wanted the best experience possible with my Pimax.
I scanned my face with a IPhone X app and created prototypes for maximum comfort and stability in my face. 1:1 stabilized. I can jump or move my face fast, and the HMD is all the time at the same distance, and without pain in my face.
Sorry, I tried the HMD in my friends and works bad. Only works for my face in the “perfect way”. But I wanted to show you my “crazy” work.
40+ prototypes. But it only cost 20$ of PLA hehe. And a lot of work and time! And now… is perfect snif… Good times hahah now is time to play… something… because I suppose people use Pimax in this way… The next time I will buy only the case, to create mods haha.
I discovered the DAS is not working in the best way with actual printed hinges. I needed to force a normal use, with modified hinges and extra foam in the back.
Then I used a piece to hold the HMD to my forehead, like PSVR, but then… I discovered that the different size, shape and weight… made that my HMD tilt over my face in differents ways. I was trying to not have pressure directly over my face.
Then, I made a special piece for my nose. Like normal glasses. It works very well, but only with a high IPD, because the piece need to be between the lenses.
Finally, I discovered that using a extra extension of the HMD to have it hold to my temples works very well. Then I use this method and now I have my nose free of weight too.
I made 40+ prototypes because I want a perfect sensation of “nothing” in my head. Then I needed to recreate it some times to get rid of imperfections and micro movements.
Actually there is zero weight over my face. The foam doesn’t touch my face. I use it only for the light. And I can play games like Racket NX, looking very fast to my back, the floor, or the ceiling… and the movement of the HMD is 1:1 with my head and without touch my face. Absolutely natural, like the real life
