Introducing Mamut VR Protection - Vive. 

Safety for your gear without compromising the experience  


WHY?
From the get go it was quite clear that the controllers was in
great risk of hitting just about everything around you while playing.
YouTube and Reddit forums later proved this to be a real concern. 
Something had to be done.  
With experience in completing similar projects and working in the industry we saw our opportunity when no one else seemed to want to take the leap. 

All cost for injection mould is covered, this Kickstarter is preorder.
Retail will kick in Q1 2017.

HOW?
Using already known and tried sources in China for production 
and using our warehouse in Shenzen is the key for holding down
production and shipping costs.

The complicated one. Combining thick, lightweight material
without covering the sensors was the two main issues.  

It needed to be thick, with internal deformation zones
so it could withstand a real smack in the wall and of course  
it should not interfere with tracking.  
Try out yourself, less than 3 dots is a fail: Occlusion test 
This one started, and even named the project  
(frontal, tilted a bit up nose - voilá! A skull).  

Material: Solid Matte Thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU)  
Method: Injection Mould  
Size: 124x48x72mm
Weight: 57 grams / 2oz  


Mamut Spine

The stock strap provided has proven to be under dimensioned.   
We have modified the original design by adding a thicker loop.
This will keep the controller connected to the strap even if dropped  
in high speed during gameplay.  
In addition we also added a quick buckle so you can easily  
switch your left and right without having to pull the strap of your wrists. Material: Round woven polyester, filled. Elastic.  
Attachments: Quick buckle, lenght adjuster  
Size: 6x220mm  

Mamut Cape 

There is no real science behind the Cape,   
 it's just a extra large microfiber cloth.   
Because when it comes to sweat absorbing, bigger is better.   
Material: Polyester   
Method: Sublimation printed 4+0   
Size: 180x150mm  

Risks and challenges

There has been risks and challenges, mostly financial.
We rebooted our Kickstarter after we got the funds for
the injection mould externally.

With the initial funding for the mould sorted we are over our biggest hurdle. Since all partners involved in the production has been used on several occasions prior to this project we are confident that there will be no nasty surprises along the way.

In the case of an extremely large demand we have a plan and partners standing by to help us with the shipping and administration.

Now you can pre order the protection of your choice for just a tad
under retail, and about 3-6months earlier too.
Happy shopping, and punching.
