Hello everyone, i'm torc from italy (so excuse my bad english).
I found this great community since i saw the great Palmer's oculus rift project, and i saw that there's a lot of HMD guru in this community.
It's been a while i'm working on my generic home cockpit (sci fi, flight and mech sim lover), but after a lot of project, i thought that an HMD would be great for immersion despite screens or projectors, and i'm pretty much happy to see i'm not the only mad guy that loves to put an DIY VRhelmet in his head!
By the way, let's go to the point:
Basically i'm waiting for the Oculus Rift, but if i understood correctly, this HMD doesn't work whit 2D games.
So i thought to build my 2D High FOV Helmet.
I made a deep research in this forum and i have a little questions for all of you:
- For a 2D display, can i use 2 aspheric lenses (one for each eye) or need i to use a big square one?
- Do you have more FOV whit a square or round lenses?
- I'd like to use this screen since it seems the best compromise for an HMD: 5.6" TFT ( http://bit.ly/O3Kn1o
) is there some new available more high definition screen or is it the best choice?
Those are my first noob question...i'll continue to make this topic updated whit my WIP.
Thank you all in advence for the support.... Keep it up people!
