Features Spotlight ‘Control Box’

Updated: Oct 12, 2020

‘Control Box’

Moving on, we are looking at the control box. This lovely small device sits at the bottom of the chair and is the data centre for the chair. It can be found in box 1 with the base, and has four screws to affix it to the seat, which are also included. 

The control box is powered by the cable magazine and has micro USB cables that run from the side of the control box into the cable magazine. This provides data options for the USB ports on either side. 

On side A, we have the charging ports. This can be for the headtracker, your phone, whatever you want really! As long as it has a USB cable, it can be charged. To the right of this are the ports where you pop in the cable for the emergency stop button, but more on that in a later episode. 

Side B has ports that are used for data, it is here that the USB cable for your headset will go into, as well as the soundcard that may be needed for the rumble on a Oculus Rift CV1.

The front of the control box is where the volume dial is, and it has a handy little light that tells you when it’s switched on. There’s also an audio port for cable G, which will assist the rumble. 

And there you go! Another wonderful component of the Roto VR chair. As always, if you have any questions on this, you can contact us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Discord. If email is your thing, then please feel free to contact us on
