A teenager from a small village in France named Maxime Coutte with his best friends, and his math teacher Jerome Dieudonne, built a Virtual Reality headset for $100! Mixime said that they had always wanted to have a VR head set, but it was always too expensive. So what did he do about it? He and his companions went out and bought the cheapest components.

List of Items needed

  • Arduino Due, $34 for the official one or $10 for a Chinese clone
  • GY-521 MPU-6050, $1
  • 5.5 inch 2560*1440 2K LCD Screen HDMI to MIPI, up to 100€ on Alie Express. Price may vary a lot
  • Fresnel lens Focal Length 50mm, $3

 

How does this relate to engineering? This relates to engineering because some people went out there and created a VR headset from scratch.
