    Love The Vive but....

    I love the VR experience but the headgear is just so damn heavy, hot and cumbersome
    I would like to play more than an hour but after that the face foam is damp to wet so much so that I can't offer it to anyone else to try.
    personally can't wait till this evolves into something light & cool (and wireless)

    wireless is here now I think , China only for now , but close....I don't really notice the weight after I get it on but a little mini cooling fan in there would be a nice add on I think...

    I have to think it will be a lot better soon. LG has shown off huge tv's that are a mere 2mm thick, about the thickness of a creditcard.

    For the Vive though, there are options that will likely make it more comfortable, like the lighter cable you can buy, the newly announced deluxe headstrap, or the wireless attachment that is coming this year.

    They should have added a cooling system underneath the padding, much like how some controllers have fans in them to keep your hands from getting sweaty. Would have been nice.

    I'm really surprised that for $1,400 AU they haven't thought of this.

    I'm not sure about a cooling system, but certainly get a waterproof VR cover.

    Install an overhead fan, or put a standing fan in the room?

    Only install an overhead fan if you have vaulted ceilings. I have seen some bad accidents with people hitting their fans.

    I switched to these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Much felt much better against my face and not as much sweat all over.

    Saw these but thought they were way overpriced
