PROBLEM STATEMENT & DESIGN OPPORTUNITY

 

After observing the using of current VR headset by different users and researches, current VR glasses are not user-friendly.

The shape of the VR goggles exhausted the users, especially after an extended period of time, the padding becomes dirty after several use.

If the user has myopia and used to wear eyeglasses instead of eye contacts, this will be an awful experience for them because most headset don’t reserve space for eye glasses.

Final Model

  • The headset comes with three sizes of padding which allows different sizes of eyeglasses.

  • The padding is easy to clean.

  • The band is really easy to regulate. The user just needs to rotate the button on the back.

  • The Headset contains a sensor on each side which will detect the distance between user and objects near them.
