Oculus Rift Sensors

If you want to attach your Oculus Rift sensor onto a tripod or camera mount, you’ll first need to remove the sensor body. Once you remove the sensor body, you can attach the sensor body’s 1/4"-20 camera mount to a compatible tripod or camera mount.

To remove the sensor body from your Oculus Rift sensor:

  1. Place your sensor base on a flat surface (example: table) and unclip the sensor cable from the cable clip
  2. Grip the sensor body at the top in one hand and hold the sensor base down in your other hand
  3. Gently twist the sensor body counter-clockwise until it snaps loose
  4. Lift the sensor body up from the flat surface and then twist the sensor base clockwise until the sensor body comes off

Once you attach the sensor body to a tripod or camera mount, make sure to reset your sensor tracking.

When you set up your Oculus Rift, we recommend putting your sensors in front of where you’ll be wearing your headset. But you can choose to try our experimental 2-sensor 360 setup. Learn more in our 2-Sensor 360° Experimental Setup Guide.

Note: The 2-sensor 360 setup may not work with your PC computer or play area.
