I recently got an Oculus Rift from my brother which was an awesome present from an awesome brother I’ve been thinking of ways I could keep it organized with the little controllers and the head-mount display while also keeping it easy to access. I didn’t want something that would fatigue the headset since it seems to be laced with wires for headphones and positional lights. I didn’t have much space for a head form to place on a table either. I decided to layout something in Illustrator that I could cut out of plywood and hang from the wireframe tray on my computer desk. I tried to keep it fairly simple.
I decided on two main head-mount hangers with two additional small outrigger hangers for the controllers. I backed all of that with a rectangle they could slot into. I also had the two main hangers protrude through the back and act as mounts that would hook onto my wire shelf frame. I did a quick test with some cardboard.
I assembled it and happily found that it fit together as I’d imagined and hoped. It was a bit flimsy, but I could at least verify fittings worked.
The mock up let me see that I wanted something a bit stronger for the head-mount support so I was able to add another cross brace in before moving on to plywood. I chose a nice cherry one.
The hooks on the back hang on the wire shelf itself and support everything else.
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out and it does a good job keeping all of the parts together when I’m not using them.
