Basic Design

Display Module

- 2x (1 per eye)

- 90 FPS 1440p Minimum, though 4k 120hz would be nice

- OLED would also be preferable

Lens + Lens Adjustment Module

- Has the two lenses (one for each eye), as well as the mechanism for adjusting them

- They are adjusted using servo motors

- These are controlled either by an inserted measurement, or by using dials on the headset itself

Eye Tracking Module

- This is optional ( due to the privacy concerns)

- It uses IR LEDs as well as IR Cameras to track pupil movment, and thus can do gaze as well as blinking tracking

- Allows for foevated rendering as well as greater immersion

Joint Module

- Allows the display module to be flipped 90 degrees up

Head Strap Module

- PSVR Halo / rEvolve Style Mount

- Also has Removable Fabric Covered Memory Foam Inserts (Use a slide in dovetail joint)

IO Module

- Uses one or more USB Type C, or USB-C + Thunderbolt 3, Cables + Ports to power the headset as well send data to and from it and the PC

Tracking Module

- Uses inside out, outside in, or a combination of the two to tract movment of the Users Head, and change the display info accordingly

Wireless Module

- Uses Wifi, or a custom signal, to replace the wires of the IO Module with a wireless connection

Battery Module

- Used only with the Wireless Module

- Is a essentially a wearable small Open Source Mobile PC Power Supply Unit
