We are in full summertime and its hot. “Summertime and the livin’ is easy” sang Ella Fitzgerald back in the 60’s. That same statement seems to resonate nowadays for VR lovers all around the world with this revolutionary yet logical headset accessory.
Playing VR games specially action packed ones, can bring your body and face to sweat profusely. Vive N Chill is a brand new integrated cooling solution for the HTC Vive. It seamlessly plugs into your HTC Vive USB port and makes for a more pleasurable experience. Their IndieGoGo campaign has successfully closed with an astonishing 464% of the initial goal raised for a total of $23,000 raised.
The Vive N Chill has been a welcomed addition for Vive players who praise its ease of use and adaptability. From what we’ve heard, the fan isn’t as strong as you’d think it would be, but good enough to keep the air flowing, blocking sweat and possible bad odor. The two fans rest above the headset supplying a gentle breeze that keeps your face sweat-free and prevent your headset from fogging up. If you play with headphones on, you shouldn’t hear the sound of the buzzing fans even with its proximity to the ears.
The Vive N Chill is a perfect add-on for the HTC Vive headset. It wouldn’t be difficult to imagine a similar function becoming an integrated part of all future VR headsets.
