I cant provide any knowledge on this topic but it is very interesting.

I can see a drum cymbal stand work well with the virtual boy.

Before I had a VB I thought a head mount or headstrap would work best, but after experiencing the vb hardware in person I feel the device would either not sit comfortably because the nose needs a lot of soft support and more importantly the way you have to look into the eye pieces is very important, you need to adjust how you look into it.

BenVenn made a video about the vb and designed a new case to work with a head mount. It was just a prototype but it is something that could get improved on. Itís a big task but it seems like fun.

A head mount is kind of the best way to experience VR but the vb is itís own unique thing, nintendo did a good choice be going with a stand, designing a good stand is the best way to go in my opinion.

So in the Workshop section of planetvb there is an idea for a Virtual Boy Stand/Mount made out of a Lamp mount.
I live in the US and I am wondering if anyone has tried making this mount and has any idea, maybe links, to a lamp and or just parts that I could use to build this construction?
I personally think it would really work well for how I would like to play.

But generally I would be interested in more ideas on how to play VB without putting to much stress on my neck.

I am new to VB gameplay and I never got any headaches or eye strains like the rumor has it.
I just find it hard to play for more than 20min because of how I cramp over to look into the third dimension.
I think the VB stand is standing between fun and long gameplay sessions.


How are you dealing with it and what tips do you have?

Re: Simplest way to fix VB display without soldering?

A week ago I bought a virtual boy.
The right lense was just black and the right one would only work ever 10 seconds for 5 seconds.
I first followed one youtube video and used a heating iron

https://youtu.be/FqFCOm-KEko

The right lense worked flawlessly after that, the left one was still not working at all.

I them followed this video and tried soldering

https://youtu.be/4CaOaHgAv9I

I am an armature when it comes to soldering but I pulled it off and now have a fully funktioning virtual boy.
I am usually very good with tiny things that need a lot of patience. But I wanna encourage you to try it yourself. It felt really good when I realized I fixed it.

Other than that, there seem to be a few people on this board that have a lot of experience with fixing the virtual boy and the money they ask for seems very reasonable.

Donít give up!


Love
