Give it up. As it stands right now, it will not work.
How about you let me do what I want to do, and I'll let you have you pessimism party over there? It will work, not with a stock helmet, no, but with some design mods it'd be fine. Never say never, chakaar.

Nobody's saying never We're saying not now. the size of helmet that would be required to fit that would get you denied an app. it's far too big, and i don't think there's any mods you could add to a front that would hide it in a way that looks good. as opposed to obviously hiding a bulky bit of kit under the thing.

I know you can't hide it under the helmet, @_@ I'm saying it's possible to incorporate it into the helmet with some external mods believably.

And we are telling you that as it CURRENTLY stands, it is not possible to hide it. And by having it as an external piece of hardware it is no longer an internal heads up display, which is what this is about.

You also need to be aware that you have to mod it to look like it belongs in Star Wars and that may mean modifying the housing of the electronics and the could ruin your vr headset.

Finally, it wont fit under your helmet, or over it. The sizing is wrong.

Well duh. You would have to incorporate it into the faceplate/ dome area, I believe most of the band/back would fit under a properly sized helmet. And you wouldn't necessarily have to mess with the housing, just add onto it. I never said it was going to be an internal HUD-- I said it would probably work to get a HUD effect with a helmet.
Let's put this to rest. Obviously it isn't going to be what you want, but that doesn't not make it a viable future option for some sort of helmet integration. You don't like it, don't use it. I think it'd be fun to incorporate it into my bucket, so who cares?

And again. It will not fit under a helmet and still be acceptable as Kit and Kilstar and I have all said. But if you want to waste $300+ on this to get that effect go for it.

I never said the damn thing would fit under a helmet! I said you would have to build some sort of external housing for it-- read before you post!

Before you say something you will regret, and before you get all high and mighty and act out.

I did read, I explained why your idea currently would not work, as have others including another OM.

I still think the band would fit under a properly sized helmet, it has a small profile. I thought we were discussing the visor bit so it appears we were discussing two different things. And I'm not getting high and mighty, high and mighty is  just annoyed that I tried to bring something up I thought could be cool and was immediately shut down-- I thought we were here to brainstorm and figure out ideas, not limit them?
High and mighty is saying flat out 'it will not work'.
I tried to meet you half way-- I know it's impractical, but I was trying to figure out how we could get it to be plausible instead of just pushing it under the rug.

Udesii, lads, this thread belongs not only to the Mand'alor' but the MMCC as a whole.

Carid, you were a little blunt mate, even if you do have a point.

I can see this issue being highly variable on a person-to-person basis...I'm 6'2" and very broad, but with a pretty small head for my size...a Boba 1:1 is massive on me, even with an extra-thick keyhole area.

If I could extend the lens section of the 'glasses' to become the full 'T' visor, I could easily build a Buy'ce around this. Easily. And it'd be a better fit than my current pile of osik...'course, that 300 would be better invested in something else!

Now play nice. Nobody wants to see this descend into a virtual slugging-fest. It's highly off-putting to UM's trying to learn some sparky tricks :)
