ValveRecently I experimented with some lenses because I couldn’t stand the glare of the original lenses. I bought a VR smartphone headset, took out the lenses, modelled an adapter for them, printed them and tinkered a bit with the distortion. The glare is gone, unfortunately there’s a bit of pupil swim and/or distortion and a reduced FOV but I can live with it.
If anybody wants to try this mod and maybe improve upon it, here’s the „ingredients“:
1x pair of lenses from the BOBOVR Z6 or VR Shark X6 headset:
I don’t know if those two headsets are the same, but they sure look like it. They probably are just marketed with a different name in different regions. In Germany they are called VR Shark X6 and apparently you can get them as second-grade goods if you ask the distributor.
