Introduction: Device Securer for DoDoCase Build Night
I've been really impressed with the Smartphone Virtual Reality Viewer from DoDoCase VR. We've had a great time showing it off to our members here at the library. But, I'm typically using my phone to show people, and once or twice the phone has slipped out the side of the viewer when someone is turning it sideways to exit an app. So, I put a quick Device Securer using some supplies we had around the library.
Step 1: Supplies: What You'll Need
Put your Smartphone VR Viewer together using this fantastic Instructable if you can't quite figure it out.
Once its assembled, grab the following:
A smartphone or device
Step 2: Make Some Duct Tape Straps
Cut a length of Duct Tape that is 2 inches long
Cut a length of Duct Tape that is 1 3/4 inches long
Stick the 1 3/4 inch long strip sticky side down onto the 2 inch long strip that is sticky side up
Cut this section of Duct Tape in half, so you have two strips ready to go.
Step 3: Add Some Velcro
Cut small squares of self-adhesive Velcro, 2 of each side
Stick the sides of Velcro together
Remove the lining so the adhesive is exposed
Stick one side of the Velcro onto the non-sticky side of the duct tape (the sticky side of the Duct Tape should be facing upward).
Step 4: Attach to the VR Viewer
Stick the sticky part of the Duct Tape to the front flap of the VR Viewer
Fold the VR Viewer into its closed position and bend the Duct Tape strap so it touches the side of the VR Viewer
Your Velcro adhesive (that you removed in the previous step) will stick to the side of the VR Viewer
Repeat this process on the other side of the VR Viewer.
Step 5: Protect Your Device
Insert your device into the front flap of the VR Viewer
Fold up the VR Viewer and then stick the Velcro on the Duct Tape straps to the Velcro on the side of the VR Viewer
Your device won't slip out of the VR Viewer any longer.
