How to build your own AR Headset



So I was thinking with spatial computing becoming more and more popular, it'll only be a matter of time before it becomes ubiquitous and as we have blogs on 'building your own PC' nowadays, the same thing is gonna happen for AR headsets. So this is a post on all the basic components you will need and the companies manufacturing them. I haven't really pulled this off yet but I'm looking to and have done some research on it.


I've only researched about the display/optics technologies for now, so I'm gonna start with that, and I'll update the post as more information becomes available.
