Virtual Boy Head Mount

While playing around with some various famicom items that arrived today, I realised I could make a very comfortable VB head mount using the famicom 3D system as a base.

Now, I know youre all thinking "Noo! Don't ruin the rare expensive 3D system!" However, these usually go on yahoo japan for the equivalent of about £10 UK ($20 dollars or therebouts) brand new.

Here are some pics of the 3D system compared to the VB:

I look forward to your replies, and I'll keep you all posted on this when I get round to it...

I don't think it will work, the VB is much to heavy... Maybe better take some sort of helmet or so. Then there also isn't the sacrileg of destroing a Famicon 3D system ;)

I'm gonna try to rip out anything unnecessary (speakers, stand mount, unnecessary plastic, etc etc)

Maybe lose a little weight...

Oh, thanks for your enthusiasm :P

Later all

No it was japan only. From what i can gather it uses LCD technology to give a 3d effect (don't ask me how ive never used it)

So, what happened with this project? Did it ever make it beyond the idea phase? It sounds intriguing.

Funny you should say that... I haven't checked this furom for a long while, and about half hour ago I decided to go and make it.

It fits nicely and is relatively comfortable. Looks OEM too, heres the pics:

It took 5 minutes and I didn't even have to open the console!

People should try this, you can get the famicom 3d unit for about $10 on yahoo japan.

let me know what you all think
