    I'm just wondering what kind of mods(accessories, fixes, hardware, tricks, etc.) you guys are currently using to up your VR game.

    Here are mine for my HTC Vive:
    Samsung Gear VR Lens swap w/ 3d printed adapters
    6mm VR cover(Switched out original face foam)
    Deluxe Audio Strap
    25 Ft HDMI and 25 Ft USB cable(Play in another room)

    What kinds of stuff you guys using in conjunction with your HMDs?

    I have the prescription insert for my Rift. They work awesome.
    I ran a long usb cord under my carpet for my 3rd sensor. It works very nice and have no blind spots anymore.

    For my Rift: 10' usb and hdmi extenders, security camera mounts for the sensors and VR cover for the headset is about it. I run 2 cameras in a 10'x10' play space.

    A few months ago I got the Samsung Odyssey Plus. Fun HMD with some drawbacks. Mainly, this thing NEEDS to be tweaked to be comfortable.

    Here are my mods:
    VRCover for Samsung Odyssey Plus
    Rechargeable USB Batteries for the controllers
    Studioform Creative Head strap
    Velcro dots + double sided velcro (Attached the dots to bottom of HMD and back behind the ear pieces to force the bottom portion of the HMD to not move when on head. This makes games look incredible as there's no more blurriness due to the HMD being slightly raised from the bottom away from your face.)

    After adding each of these tweaks, the HMD has become vastly more comfortable to deal with and is a via replacement to my previous Vive setup.
