    I'm using Oculus Rift with my DIY but I have got a problem, after 1 or 2 minutes my lenses get very foggy, sameone has the same problem? What can I do to solve this annoying problem?

    There are a range of approaches to foggy lenses: https://riftinfo.com/oculus-rift-lenses-getting-foggy-try-this

    Fog is caused by a temperature difference. An easy one to try before spending any money is to drape a cloth over the Rift to trigger the sensor to turn it on, leave it running for a while before use and it will heat itself up a bit. If you also control the temperature in the room and breath through your mouth they will both help as well.

    Wind helps me a lot but be warned - it's addictive.

    I tried to breath with my mouth, to put a cloth on my nose but nothing, lenses get foggy... I'm trying to use the @noorbeast advice, but how many minutes do you suggest to let the oculus running?

    @Zed : what do you mean with wind? Fans that simulate the wind in the game?

    Exactly. There is a long thread here about it.
