Show Off Your Rift Setup [Photos Inside]

So, some people may have received their Rifts today. Many more will receive this week and beyond. I figured I'd kick off a thread for people to post photos of their new Rift or their Rift setups. I'll start with mine.

This is just the Kickstarter Edition box. Nothing you probably haven't seen before, but still such an impressive looking box. Hats off to the design team for coming up with something so sleek.

This is a flexible tripod arm I got to mount the tracking sensor on. You may not know, but the sensor twists off at two lengths, one at the base and one almost at the top. I screwed it off the top thread and attached it to this $15 flexible tripod.

Just went through Dreamdeck and some of Dead Secret. It's so good. I've even done Dreamdeck at least like 3 or 4 times before, but somehow it was just way better finally seeing on my home rig. The part with the alien almost seemed real. Can't wait to try some of the other content for longer sessions (as for work I can usually only test for shorter periods).

Please feel free to share your setup too!

Nice Sensor mount Cyber. Gonna use that idea too so I can attach it on the side of my desk. I don't have much desk real estate available. Great tip! I'll update with pic once I get my rift, I'm a 27er

Now, I wish there was a type of oculus rift stand.

I'm not setting up my space until the Rift ships.  Right now my PC makes a really good $850 Netflix box.

*woah woah woah*

No joke, you just made my day. I would have had no idea that was possible until, at best, I had my CV1 unboxed.  
I have my 2 monitors mounted so center of the primary 27" is at center of my view when seated, and the other monitor angled in on the right also mounted the same way. They extend out just a foot and a half from the front of the desk, right behind the keyboard and mouse. I had no idea how the heck I was going to transition from webcam style camera to the desk stand. Clicking, buying, thanking you!!!

So extenders aren't exactly officially supported as depending on the quality or length it could introduce additional latency or just not work at all. However, I'm using 10 foot passive HDMI and USB extenders and they seem to work working fine for me.
