Advice needed on vr ceiling cable management


#1

Hi, I am waiting patiently for my pimax headset as we all are… .so in the mean time I have set up a VR room of 30 sq mt. I need advice on the best way to suspend your hmd cable’s from the ceiling. I have tried hydroponic yoyos, but the tension seems too strong. Ideally I would like adjustable ceiling mounted devices that take the weight of the cables off my head and allows me to move around in roomscake without the fear of tripping and losing immersion . Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. .thanks

Much appreciated…looks exactly like what I need…:+1:I’ve tried pausing the video to see what brand the pully’'s are…but I can’t make it out. I don’t suppose you know what brand they are or where I can purchase them?.cheers

i don’t think it makes much of a difference as they are just extendable keychains… i actually use them when i go skiing for my ski pass… similar to these ones.

Thanks for that…looks really good…good find👍

The dog leashes look like they work well. Not the cheapest solution but what part of this is.


#8

Leashes work very good for me. It’s like i have wireless module on the budget :slight_smile:
I’m planing to buy Pimax 5k+ but i still have not found working and tested solution for the 35feet (10m) extension Display port cable that works without any issues with Pimax.


#9

Looks like my setup, but I have (ID) badge “leashes”. Put doubles because the extension cable was too heavy to keep it up to the ceiling.


#10

Did you find a reliable display port extension cable?


#11

I ordered the 10m cable from pimax so am waiting on that to arrive…gopefully i will have their conteollers and basestations by then. Im only using 3dof at the moment so ne need for roomscale. The wait is killing me


#12

how did you order that 10m cable from Pimax? i dont see it listed.
I ordered a 10ft display port extension, will report back if it works well.


#13

I orderes the 10 meter cable during my kickstarter pledge. I also ordered the base stations and controllers. Think.i paid $70 for the cable.


#14

Yes please report back, I am in need of about a 2-4m cable.
