This will get a much longer writeup but I've been fixing up a broken PXL-2000 that records video to cassette tape. RF output didn't work so I performed a composite video mod. Then the lens assembly was wonky so I modified that. Soon I'll add some RCA connectors and clean heads.

Someone needs to start a patreon where they work through a '90s VR book like Garage Virtual Reality or Virtual Reality Homebrewer's Handbook and hack a bunch of old HMDs and devices like the Power Glove as outlined in the book while working with software like REND386 in DOSBox.

Got some VictorMaxx StuntMaster headsets from the '90s and they're fairly easy to hook up to power, composite video, and audio when you don't have original cables. They are definitely just cheap HMDs, but they have novelty.

Upgraded my with an mod and a multi-region mod. I learned that I am much better at through-hole soldering than surface, but everything seems secure (except those kynar leads that I later removed) and in working order. The video looks excellent through an OSSC!
