2014-08-28 (Th) LEGO Virtual Reality Visor



CAD files were created for each module of the visor. The files illustrate how to assemble each module by using arrows to direct pieces onto the mating pieces. Colors in the drawings were changed to make them appear better on white so the instructions can be printed. Each file was drafted as a pdf and converted to png. An Instructables draft was started. A screenshot of SpaceTerrorVR was taken because SpaceTerrorVR uses a split screen display and accelerometer tracking to change view so it can be used with this visor.

2014-08-27 (W) LEGO Virtual Reality Visor

The visor was broken into three sections; the lens plane, the base, and the phone support pieces. A simple rotating platform was constructed on a large flat pieces with a simple background all made from LEGOs. Each section of the visor was placed on the platform and photographed while rotating. The pieces were supported by yellow bricks were not meant to be part of the design but merely for display.

Rotating support pieces

LEGO bricks and plates were drafted according to sizes given on the internet. Only 2D views were drafted. Arrows describing assembly were also drafted specifically for this project. Assembly instructions for the support pieces was arranged. The support pieces were done first because they were the simplest so problems were quickly rectified.

Between rotating views and drafted assembly diagrams the instructions should be clear.

To do:
  • Finish drafted diagrams

2014-08-26 (Tu) Charged: DesertIrish



Everyone met for breakfast at the hotel breakfast area. Head was still in a foul mood and got upset each time Dawson spoke until Dawson announced he would loan everyone a vintage car for the time being rather than rental cars. Dawson, Motor, and Shana drove to a junk yard Motor and Head had been to recently. During the ride the three discussed Head’s mood and Shana suggest it could be loneliness on Head’s part since Motor spends so much time with Heather. The text should be revised so Shana tells them how she knew Motor and Heather were a new couple. At the junk yard the three of them selected five vehicles based on their resale value. Dawson asked Motor to negotiate the price for him and offered Motor a percentage of the money saved. He did well haggling and arranged for the cars to be delivered to the dock.

When the three arrived back at the dock Numbers told Dawson about hidden cameras in the building. They suspected Shana but she immediately alerted Dawson about the cameras after looking for only a moment. Dawson evacuated the dock and destroyed the cameras with Shana’s guidance. Numbers confirmed when all the cameras were inoperative.

To do:

  • Revise to show how Shana knew Motor and Heather were a new couple
