    hi guys,

    since a while im modding my (unofficial) google cardboard to accomadate my phone
    this is just a 1 day job and can be fixed in less than 5 hours.

    its original descriptions say: it would fit a 7" phone
    but this was not true. my 5.5" phone did not fit inside and the vr-modus is offset.
    it should also be able to fit the honof 6 (for the honor 6+ i do not know or it fits)


    that is why im making this mod.

    materials needed:
    some velcro from a 1$store (in those packs are around 16-24 velcro stickers, you only need around 6-8)
    ducktape
    packaging tape
    1x1 dual sided tape
    a cardboard box of 1 level tick
    a pen (color does not matter)


    it might not look really pretty yet. but its a start.
    this will also be the first google cardboard mod on the site :search:


    the start:
    [​IMG]


    cutted the nose part and made the holes for the sticking out cardboard at the bottem
    its also the remaining cardboard of the packaging of the cardboard kit
    [​IMG]


    how it looks like if the cardboard is on the new bottem layer
    [​IMG]


    cutting and marking the bending part for the phone flap
    [​IMG]


    the newly eddited cardboard kit for longer lifetime
    added some tape for stability ducktape for sweat protection
    [​IMG]


    under the magnet the dualsided tape to keep it in place
    [​IMG]


    the new bottem layer+ edges to keep it in place
    [​IMG]


    how the complete mod looks like
    the small flaps at the side are for extra sturdyness for heavy/large phones
    [​IMG]



    things to do:
    *adding the velcro
    *painting
    *makin it more stable
    *adding the head-band
    *configurating the nfc-chips
    * fixing the magnet if it does not work



    feel free to tell some ideas i can imply into this small project.
    then i will look if its possible to do.




    greetings darknessblade

    What the heck is this? A cartboard device to place your phone in front of your face so you can watch movies? I kinda like this :D
