Can the 'Wireless Adapter for VIVE Cosmos' be mounted somewhere other than my head?

@Doodle - Most likely the limitations would be cabling and heat dissipation/shielding followed by occlusion. The wireless adapter has unique output parameters - basically the output/signal is optimized for the short cable. You won't be able to use the stock ~5m long tether that ships with the HMD, you can only use the short cable with the wireless adapter. The kit ships with additional foam to help shield your skin from heat - any other mounting solution would need to have some sort of shielding. When mounted to your head, you have the least potential for occlusion - if it's mounted to one side of your body, you can fully occlude and block the signal from the PC side transceiver. The head-mounted design ensures 360 coverage.
