An HMD in a ski mask ?

I’ve sacrificed my ski mask so that I could mount my Vuzix VR 920 in it. It took me one hour.

This has two great advantages :

– it completely occludes the real world, which is good for presence,

– it can be tightly adjusted to fit on your head and is quite comfortable.

Some disadvantages :

– it’s less practical for people with glasses,

– it’s less hygienic,

– less heat dissipation which caused the HMD to fail a few times during Laval Virtual

We used it heavily during the Laval Virtual tradeshow (review coming soon..) and are very happy with the result !

  1. You can disassemble VR920, drill holes in it’s shell for better air ventilation, and even attach small cooler there, on battery or USB. Just guessing solution to overheat 🙂

    By the way Vuzix new “Wrap” model seems to me heats so much less!
