RamVR is a concept virtual reality headset customised to fit an individual, reducing wearer fatigue and increasing comfort. A user’s head is first 3D scanned and the model adjusted to fit, contoured goggles follow the lines of the face to apply even pressure. The sweep of the headset from the integrated headphones through the crown support and then toward the forehead provides pressure relief and is visually reminiscent of a ram’s horn.

- HARDWARE- Artec Eva & Artec Spider 3D scanners
Using the Artec Eva and Artec Spider hand held scanners a point cloud of my face was obtained and a solid model created and refined in the Artec studio software. The resulting mesh was analysed and repaired in 3-Matic and some minor errors adjusted in Sculptris. A smooth lofted section of the face was created in Rhino 3D to form the custom contour of the goggles. The headset modelling was performed in Rhino 3D using the scanned head for reference and finally rendered in Keyshot for visual presentation.
