The DODOcase VR viewer V1.1 is an inexpensive kit based on the Google Cardboard project. This viewer works with many cellphones and provides a neat Virtual Reality experience, many VR applications are available.

I recently saw Guardians of the Galaxy and thought, it would be cool if the DODOcase VR Viewer looked more like the Star Lord Helmet from the movie. I happened to only have large reflectors, so my project turned into more of an LED Cyclops modification, but perhaps this instructable will inspire someone else to build a DodoCase Star Lord Mask

Parts and Supplies Needed

  • Cardboard - I used the box the DODOcase VR came in
  • Reflector lens (just the cover of the reflector)
  • LED light
  • Resistor - 330 Ohm
  • Wire
  • Electrical Tape
  • 9V battery holder and Battery
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Knife
  • Solder and Soldering iron

First Build the VR Viewer.

There are instructions in the kit and even Instructables that explain how to build the VR, but here's a short video showing me assembling one. Should give you all the clues you need to build yours

Step 1: ​Next Build the LED Cyclops Mod Attachment

Next Build the LED Light attachment

  • Cut two rectangles of cardboard the shape of the front of the DodoCase VR (If you want to use the Camera, and some VR apps do, leave a hole in both new layers)
  • The top layer holds the reflector lens in place
  • The next layer down holds the LED light and has wires taped to it.
  • Here's an instructable that can help you determine which if any resistor you need. https://www.instructables.com/id/LEDs-for-Beginners...
  • Solder the resistor to the 9V adapter and then to the LED
  • Attach the 9V battery to the inside of the viewer as shown
  • Run the wires into the original VR Viewer camera hole and attach it to the 9V battery
  • To get the full cyclops effect, maybe I should add a headband strap https://www.instructables.com/id/Headband-For-DoDo-...

    That reflector looks awesome. Safety is important when experiencing a virtual reality.
