Imagine using a Virtual Reality headset underwater, it’s really a promising interesting experience, the buoyancy you will experience adds to the fun, making you feel like you’re actually in space. But sadly there is no dedicated underwater headset in the stores. The VR technology is fast growing and startups have sprung towards its developments.

But as usual someone on the internet always got your back. At some point there is no thrill in the immersive VR if your legs still touch the ground. Well, If you choose to get wet using VR, Robots Everywhere has a solution that works. He demonstrated an underwater VR headset made of custom 3D printed material and couple of cheap DIY materials on YouTube.

He used Google’s cardboard due to its resistance to water and strength. Then his custom 3D printed part is placed accordingly with a tape to prevent water from registering an action on the screen.
