From my understanding its whatever you do to promote the Virtual Boy now when its the anniversary of the VB and all
The VB 3D model and the commercial for example I would not add as "2015 projects" hence why I included my video but anyway L_E_T, don't forget to post what you did to support our cool friend the VB ;)



Mmmm while on the VB 3D model subject, I got to admit this is not gonna happen any time soon, I did fully intend on modelling it completely but have kind of got side-tracked drawing and detailing my new house build, which has taken rather a lot of my spare time, and still is, there is quite a lot goes into a house oddly :)
Sorry to all who have been waiting, one day it will appear here for all to view and download, but I don't know when.

Oh yeah Starfox would be a good one.
Metroid would be high up the list for me, NES or SNES versions, with some nice deep backgrounds and a few flashing into the screen explosions etc.

I watched that, not a bad programme actually.
You got good eyes, I missed seeing the VB in the background.

Soft material would be great, Minestorm let me know if you want the model tweaking to add in vents, some slots could be added however they would let light in so might need to experiment with angled slots.

Welcome.
Nice find, even if its a bit busted up, nothing that cannot be fixed with replacement parts.
Being from the UK we will never (well almost) see these for sale in anything but the retro shops, even then its a rare find, I have only ever seen 1 shop with 1 in it, about 10 plus years back and then I missed getting it, auction sites seem to be our only option.
Keep your eyes open and grab it if you see one.

I do now have more kits available, cost is £6 each plain, un-etched (OR £7 each with Neartendo etching but I only have a few left with etching), postage costs are:

UK = £1.10
Europe = £3.50
US & rest of world = £4.50

(postage is NOT tracked, just proof of posting given by the post office, tracking costs an additional £4.50)

All prices are in British pounds.

Send me a PM and I'll let you know Paypal info.

Once payment is received and I have a postal address I will send out.

It does need a little tweaking, just got a copy from minestorm and there is a bit of a gap at the top, I'll need to alter the model a bit to close that.
The head strap and this would make a good partnership.

we use a rubber seal strip here at work which could well do the trick, but the 'visor' part mould need to be lower to take up the added distance by adding it.
It would fit over the edge and has a round rubber section that will deform against the face, could work ok.
its from Seals Direct, part code ETS1556, might need to alter the visor thickness to suit it too.
I will see if I can get some from the department that uses it and then rework the visor height to compensate.
