Mask mods, comms, fans, camera mounts, etc... post them up!

Hey guys,
I'm in the process of modifying my Dye I4s to fit my style of scenario play. I'm securing a headset to the mask, and plan on adding some micro fans for ventilation. I'd like to see what everybody else has done to their masks. After I get back from West Point and clean everything up, I'll be posting pics of mine along with links for the hardware if anybody wants to take from my examples. I've seen guys using a HUD from ski goggles for a map and stuff. I'm curious how they do it all, hardware and software. I'm posting this mostly so i can see what others have done for ventilation since that's my next step being someone who wears glasses. But figured I'd create a thread for everyone to show off their masks

I actually had taken a small computer fan and just put a 9v battery in the strap with a little switch to turn it on and off. I think I either used superglue or zip ties to actually mount it on the top. Looked pretty ghetto but worked well up until it got shot.

Dont have any pictures though, it was like 10 years ago.

The guys who were developing a HUD for paintball used to have
a Facebook page, as well as a website, but I think they pulled it
some time back. Was an excellent idea, but I suspect it'd be too
costly for most players. The ski goggle HUD unit by itself runs
over 300.00 if I'm not mistaken. Even at that the concept only
works if you have someone else who also has one. Here's a link
to the page where this was all being discussed a couple years
ago. Check out the video links, but forget following the site link
as that's dead.

BTW, I have seen a system which was being pitched to the Navy
SEALs, which not only provided a way to link up to two different
radios they carry. It could also call up a map of anywhere on the
planet, plus translate in multiple languages. If that wasn't enough
you could even call up drawings of weapons, showing them in
exploded view. t the time this was being pitched, 2-3 years ago
the SEALs said they also wanted to be ale to link with Sats, so
they could send video to the brass and also so they could designate
a target for drone or bombing. Pretty cool, but again I doubt it's
something anyone here will ever see, unless they're with in one
of the teams.

Hey Steve,
Sorry, I know this is an old thread but was wondering if you were able to secure an headset into the dye i4 at all.
If so what did you use?
