Virtual reality is rising steadily in popularity but is rather expensive to foray into, so this DIY VR Headset is designed with the cost-conscious consumer in mind. Created out of RiftCat and Leap Motion devices, the headset can be created using an online tutorial from user Niero on the website Destructoid.

Many VR headsets on the market are priced to be only affordable by a handful of users, which leaves many players out of the mix. Products like the Google Cardboard look to make it more cost-effective for users, but still fall short with regard to producing an immersive experience.

The DIY VR Headset can be created in a series of steps that make it compatible with Steam VR, Oculus and Vive game renderings.
