We have been selling our hygiene solution for the Oculus Rift DK1 and DK2 since 2014 and now also offer ourVR Cover for the consumer version of the Oculus Rift. Without VR Cover, the stock foam of your VR headset can become pretty gross and worn out over time.
Besides VR Cover, we have been offering Gear VR foam replacements since January 2016 and also sell HTC Vive face foam cushions now. With your help we can also bring new facial interfaces to the Oculus Rift!
We reverse-engineered the Oculus Rift's own facial interface and, after some helpful talks with Oculus, we were able to perfect our design. While these are not official facial interface replacements, they work flawlessly and will enable you to use a variety of face foam paddings on your Oculus Rift.
We are working on a number of different face foam cushion designs, but are only able to show you two today. It is very likely that we will have more options for you to choose from before we ship your reward. One currently available option is a thinner foam replacement that positions your eyes closer to the headset lenses to increase your field of vision.
The second option is similarly shaped to the stock foam that comes with the Oculus Rift, but is extremely comfortable as it's constructed from memory foam. Both foam replacements use soft PU leather that make them comfy to wear and easy to clean.
We will also offer new versions of our VR Cover for the Oculus Rift foam replacement before we ship your reward. Our mission is to improve VR hardware with our accessories and we also launched VR Lens Lab a few weeks ago to help people use prescription lenses within their VR headset without the hassles of wearing their glasses.
Our VR Lens Lab inserts are also compatible with the new facial interfaces here.
This solution works very well but if you are just looking for a facial interface with a bit more room for your glasses, we can offer you that too. We added a bit more space to the eyewear version of our facial interface for the Oculus Rift and, just like the standard version, the eyewear version will also be compatible with our foam replacements and our new VR Covers.
The prototypes work great and we have a reliable company who will take care of producing this more flexible facial interface. As a backer you will be the first to get your hands on these new facial interfaces at this great price point. If you want to keep your Oculus Rift clean and experience a new level of comfort in VR please support this project and back us now.
Risks and challenges
We have worked with the injection moulding company before and they exceeded our original expectations. They work fast, are responsive and simply know what they are doing. We have also made foam replacements before. All we have to do is adjust the mould for the foam, make a few small tweaks, and we are good to go.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
