I don’t think it would be hard; mostly tedious to dig through documentation etc. On the Vrui download page you’ll find some (outdated) binary Vrui packages, and, more importantly, a spec file to generate binary rpm packages from source tarballs. That, and the Fedora package creation guide, are all you need to create Vrui packages. The spec file is easily adapted to create rpms for the Kinect and SARndbox packages as well.

How to assemble those packages, and the base system, into a USB image is covered by guides and manual pages covering Fedora spin creation, and that gets you almost there.

The last bit, and that might be the trickiest part, is making a live USB image with a writable disk partition on it so that you can store calibration data directly on the USB stick, to run an AR Sandbox completely from the stick without even needing an internal hard drive. I dug up some documentation on that years ago, but it seemed complicated.
