Today’s 360 VR Buzz: Palmer Luckey’s Oculus Go Mod Offers a Wishlist of Hardware Features

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Luckey began modding Go sometime after he posted a tear-down of the headset, which revealed a standard 2,600mAh 18650 lithium-ion cell inside. At the time, he concluded the battery would be “an easy upgrade.”

Now, Luckey has gone a few steps further in a new blog post by providing a brief look at some of the changes he made to the $200 standalone headset,

which include a new all-black color scheme, reduced weight, and better battery.

“[T]he resulting device is a huge step up in terms of overall experience,” Luckey says.

While he contends “anyone with a bit of technical skill can make [Oculus Go] even better,” you might want to see some of the mods first before you dust off your spudger and boil up a batch of black polyester dye.

Instead of painting it and potentially adding on more weight, Luckey stripped the unit down to its shell,

facial interface, and head strap and dipped it all in a near-boiling vat of black polyester dye.
